Following consultation last Autumn the Additional and Selective Licensing scheme was approved by Cabinet on 2nd February 2016. This means that from 1st July 2016, owners of most privately rented properties in the area will need to apply for a licence if they want to continue to let their properties. On line applications can be made from 6th April 2016.
Landlords will have until 30th September 2016 to submit their applications. A fee is charged for each licence, payable on application. Applications received after this date will attract a higher fee and continued non-compliance could result in legal action being taken.
