Rotorua Lakes Council has finally taken action on the emergency housing situation there. 

They've gone to the Environment Court to get enforcement orders against nine emergency accommodation providers. 

There have been concerns from the community that bad behaviour by emergency housing tenants is ruining Rotorua's reputation and scaring tourists off. 

Tania Tapsell is a Rotorua Lakes councillor. She joined Heather du Plessis-Allan.
