Consultation of proposed property licensing scheme

Between 5 November 2018 and 27 January 2019 we carried out a 12 week consultation on a proposed licensing scheme for private rented properties. The proposal included a mixture of Additional HMO and Selective Licensing designations covering approximately 68% (18,000) of private rented properties in the city. This consultation has now closed.

The findings of the consultation have been reviewed and a revised designation was taken to Cabinet for approval on the 17th June 2019. All papers in relation to Cabinet on the 17th June 2019 can be found here.  Below are links to the individual papers

Cabinet approved the proposal to introduce new Selective and Additional Licensing designations. The new scheme will commence on Monday 6th April 2020.
