Be a good neighbour in public housing

Your neighbours also have this right, so it's important you don't cause problems for them.

You should do all of the following:

  • show respect for your neighbours
  • help to create reasonable peace, quiet and enjoyment in your neighbourhood
  • be responsible for your visitors
  • park only in designated spaces 
  • make sure you do not create problems or engage in antisocial behaviour.
