Selective Licensing Scheme Consultation

East Staffordshire Borough Council is consulting on the renewal of the Selective Licensing Scheme proposal from Monday 10th January to Sunday 20th March 2022.

The proposal includes Branston Road, King Street, Queen Street, Blackpool Street and Broadway Street which have been identified as areas with a high percentage of private rented properties and concentrations of poor property conditions. Selective Licensing aims to tackle these issues to improve the standard of housing for tenants and improving the character of the area. 

Selective Licensing requires all landlords who provide private rented accommodation within the designated area to apply for a licence. In order for a licence to be issued they must comply with a set of conditions designed to improve housing conditions and management standards. Every property will be inspected to ensure it meets the licence conditions before a licence is granted.

If you would like to speak to a Housing Officer about the existing scheme and the proposal to renew the scheme for another five years please contact us on 01283 508578 or email selectivelicensing@eaststaffsbc.gov.uk.
