Dish dirt on nasty neigh­bours to Sky


Bray People - - NEWS - MARY FOG­A­RTY

IF NASTY NEIGH­BOURS are your bug­bear, then Sky 1 needs you for a brand new doc­u­men­tary se­ries about neigh­bourly dis­putes, part of which will be filmed in Bray and the sur­round­ing ar­eas.

The se­ries will fol­low the work of peo­ple in­volved in ‘Com­mu­nity Me­di­a­tion'. Up and down the coun­try there are teams of ex­perts on hand to of­fer help and sup­port in all ar­eas of neigh­bour­hood dis­putes. It's their aim to ef­fec­tively re­solve these is­sues for both par­ties in­volved.

‘Of­ten there's a straight­for­ward, mu­tu­ally agree­able so­lu­tion to a dis­pute,' said se­ries pro­ducer Fiona In­skip. ‘Rather than talk ra­tio­nally to each other when the prob­lem first arises, neigh­bours in­stead let dis­agree­ments sim­mer to boil­ing point, by which time ev­ery­one is sim­ply too an­gry to work out a so­lu­tion. This is where our team of ex­perts come to the res­cue.'

Mav­er­ick Tele­vi­sion is look­ing for lo­cal par­tic­i­pants. Are the noises next door are keep­ing you up at all hours? Are you un­happy with how your neigh­bour parks their car? Per­haps you're hav­ing a dis­pute over the size or place­ment of a gar­den fence? Or is the lit­ter across the street caus­ing you concern?

Other com­mon dis­putes in­clude re­ceiv­ing un­rea­son­able com­plaints, feel­ing that you are be­ing un­fairly treated or that your neigh­bours are pry­ing into your af­fairs. Maybe you just don't get on with some­one and have no idea why.

No mat­ter how big the is­sue, If you'd like to be con­sid­ered for the show, email Trina Rea on t.rea@mav­er­ or call (087) 3585285.
