Selective Licensing requires certain landlords who privately rent properties 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.
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.
This area had a selective licensing scheme which ran from 2015 to 2020 and the council is considering a further scheme for this area and want to hear your views.
A consultation document has been produced which sets out a detailed explanation of the proposals, explains selective licensing in more details and provides the evidence required to designate a scheme.
You can read the consultation document below along with a map, street list of the proposed area and the proposed licence conditions.
If you would like to comment on the proposals, please complete the online survey.
The consultation for the scheme will run for 12 weeks from 16 November 2021 to 8 February 2022.
