Quality childcare in a
welcoming & supportive environment

I just lodged a formal complaint against my guvvy house neighbours…

By Captain RAAF - 20 April 2011 65

My special neighbours have started to deconstruct several cars on the front lawn of their house, there are car parts and tools strewn all over the place, along with rubbish etc.

They’ve been doing this kind of thing for years, wrecking the colourbond fence, throwing rubbish into my yard, mobile phones onto my roof, using my driveway to get to and from their caryard parking facility and so on, not to mention their kids, all girls, getting around in just their undies, their cats and dogs wandering into my property to do what cats and dogs do, to cut a long story short, I’ve had enough!

So, I lodged a complaint and will soon receive a letter acknowledging same, with a reference number so I can refer to the departments gross lack of action in future.

I decided that a Blitzkreig approach is best, so I spoke to the elderly couple across the road and they too are submitting a formal complaint.

The question I pose to the RiotACT is, what do you think the Department of Housing will do about it?

What’s Your opinion?

The capt raaf I’ve read about would have just revved one of his many v8’s until his neighbours were scared away.

Honestly the best thing to do is try to move somewhere else. I suffered the same fate and following complaints to ACT housing I was told they couldnt tell me the outcome of the investigation for “confidentiality reasons”- meanwhile it was just business as usual for the tards next door.

You aren’t softening up in your old age, are you Captain?

Is this really the mighty Captain RAAF? Or has someone stolen your log-on?

Working for a certain authority I often work in suburbs and go to almost 50% of all the houses in a suburb over a couple of months. About 5 particular houses around that I know of in various suburbs are THAT bad and have colourbond fences. I can imagine how you feel living NEXT to these grubs, I absolutely LOATH going on to those type of properties, they give me the shits but I still have to smile and do my job.

You being Capt RAAF though, I can imagine you just drawing the line one day and having a snap – going round to your neighbours with your guns blazing. Maybe it is the only way you’ll get results short of moving house.

I’m kind of disappointed. I thought the Captain would have gone next door and shown these punks what for, but no. He’s a letter writing softy…

THE A TEAM!

Actually probably want to go with the B Team on this one, it’d be long and protracted

He already referred it to the B team…

Kudos Genital Man, glad I could set that up for you

Sorry CPN, in the immortal words of Jake Blues, I guess you’re up s*** creek…

But best of luck.

“The question I pose to the RiotACT is, what do you think the Department of Housing will do about it?”

I’ll give you the hot tip: absolutely nothing.

You don’t actually expect them to do anything do you?
You’re the letter-writing type of citizen. Your neighbors are probably the brick-throwing, stabby-stabby type of citizen. I’m sorry, but if I worked for the Department of Housing I wouldn’t do anything about your complaint either. What are you going to do, write another letter? What would your neighbors do, shank me? I bet they wouldn’t even scrawl my name on the toilet of the interchange…

I hope they do more for you than they did for me. I submitted 8 formal complaints over 2.5 years, and I knw of another 12 submitted by other residents. ACT housing, for some reason could only act on each case individually and were unable (bureaucratically or through sheer incompetence) to join the dots. Good luck.
