'ANTI-SOCIAL' TENANTS TO BE EXCLUDED IN ANGLESEY

Anglesey CC plans to keep debtors, sex offenders and drug dealers at the bottom of the housing list as part of a campaign against anti-social activities, reports the Daily Post (p1).

Those convicted of offences would have points deducted from them to make it harder for them to get one of Anglesey's 5,000 council homes.

The plan drew criticism from Shelter, but Anglesey housing director John Arthur Jones is determined to see the 'get tough' policy through.

He said the council was reacting to what people all around the country wanted.

Mr Jones said: 'Like other places, we have had some problems - particularly with drugs - and many law-abiding tenants want us to do something.'

He said applicants who had convictions going back over five years would perhaps be offered 12-month probationary tenancies.

The proposals will be discussed by Anglesey's housing committee this Thursday.
