Selective licensing in Broughton

Salford City Council is considering designating a selective licensing scheme in part of the Broughton area for a five-year period. Consultation on the proposals will commence on 17 June 2015 and will run for ten weeks, ending on 26 August 2015.

Selective licensing requires certain landlords who privately rent properties in the proposed area to obtain a licence from the council. If granted, a licence will be issued with a number of conditions which the landlord must comply with. It is a criminal offence to operate a privately rented property without a licence. A landlord will also commit a criminal offence if they fail to comply with any of the conditions of a licence. The proposed licence conditions can be found below.

Prior to designating an area for selective licensing, the council is required by law to consult with people, businesses and organisations that are likely to be affected by the proposals and also consider any views fully before making a decision.

The council has produced a consultation document which sets out a detailed explanation of the proposals and explains selective licensing in more detail. If you wish to view the consultation document, you can find it below along with a map, street list of the proposed area and proposed licence conditions.
