Selective Licensing in Netherfield

We’re consulting on new powers to make privately rented homes better for people to live in. If you’re a resident in Netherfield you can have your say on plans to make it mandatory for landlords obtain licenses for each of their private rented properties in the Netherfield area. The licence means that the landlord has to provide minimum standards of accommodation for residents.  Our intention is to work in partnership with landlords and residents to improve the area but where necessary we will be able to use our licensing conditions and enforcement powers to bring about improvements..

The power, known as Selective licensing can apply in areas where there is deprivation, high levels of antisocial behaviour, high levels of crime and poor housing conditions. The licensing will give us the powers to do more when landlords are not taking steps to deal with issues relating to properties.

Consultation is open until 5 January.

If you'd like more information you can visit one of our information events.
