A HOUSING trust has ignored more than 130 complaints made by a worried mother, it has been claimed.

A New Linx Housing Trust tenant who lives at Market Rasen’s De Aston Park estate contacted the Mail after reading last week’s article about mothers scared to let their children play outside due to problems with drugs, crime and anti-social behaviour.

The tenant, who does not want to be named, says she was shocked to read New Linx Housing Trust’s claims they take allegations of anti-social behaviour seriously.

She said: “I’ve made more than 130 complaints to New Linx in the past 18 months and as far as I can tell nothing has been done.”

The woman says she and her children often feel too scared to leave their own home and when they do leave they are verbally abused.

She said: “The people causing the trouble have broken every clause on the contract and absolutely nothing has been done.”

When the Mail contacted New Linx Housing Trust it did not deny receiving more than 130 complaints from its tenant.

A spokesman said: “I would re-iterate the position that New Linx Housing Trust takes any allegation of anti-social behaviour involving its tenants or residents very seriously.”

and if any tenant or resident wishes to discuss any concerns they should contact Housing Services at New Linx directly on 01507 355019.”
