SPECIAL measures to tackle anti-social behaviour - including buying digital cameras to catch culprits - are promised to Fenland's council house tenants if they vote to transfer to a housing association.

And for the first time prospective tenants will be "on probation" for the first 12 months, making it easier to evict anti-social tenants.

A 21-point action plan is proposed by Circle Anglia if it wins control of Fenland's 4,000 council homes in a ballot takes place later this year.

Clauses to combat anti social behaviour, racial and other harassment, noise and nuisance are included in the new tenancy agreement.

In a draft consultation document presented to Fenland District Council yesterday, the association says starter tenancies would "help the association to evict anti-social tenants".

The association also says it will:

# Give advice to those who suffer anti-social behaviour, including court witnesses

# Provide an out-of-hours response service

# Take early and firm action against tenants who break tenancy agreement

# Buy sound recording equipment, video and digital cameras and CCTV to get evidence of anti social behaviour

A new subsidiary of Circle Anglia, Roddons Housing Association, will operate the Fenland housing portfolio.
