244.New section 26B(1) sets out the circumstances in which a RSL can apply for a parenting order in respect of a parent of a child or young person. These are where the RSL has reason to believe that the child or the young person has engaged in anti-social behaviour and the behaviour directly or indirectly relates to or affects the RSL’s housing management functions.

245.New section 26B(2) to (7) makes parallel provisions to new section 26A(2) to (7) described above.

246.New section 26B(8) requires an RSL to consult with the local authority in whose area the child or young person resides before applying for a parenting order.

247.New section 26B(9) and (10) makes clear the responsible officer may be an officer of the RSL or a person nominated by the RSL. A person may not be nominated by the RSL without their consent. When deciding whom to nominate the RSL must take into account the views of the local authority and other appropriate persons and bodies.
