Property Licence Scheme 2020

This consultation has now ended.


This consultation ran from 04/11/2020 to 31/01/2021.

Results


As you might recall a stakeholder consultation was undertaken between November 2020 and January 2021 on the Councils proposal to redesignate Selective Licensing schemes in the Greater High Cross and Byker Old Town areas of the city.  

We would like to thank everyone who took part in the consultation.

Following consultation an analysis of the results was undertaken and a review of the original licensing proposal took place. No changes to the proposed designation were made following this review.

A proposal was taken to Newcastle City Council Cabinet on Monday 21st June 2021 to redesignate both areas for a further 5 years on the grounds of Anti-Social behaviour. Cabinet agreed to designate both Selective Licensing areas. The cabinet papers can be found here.

The formal Designation Notice has been published and can be viewed at www.newcastle.gov.uk/propertylicensing or at West End Library & Community Hub, Condercum Road, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE4 9JH and East End Library and Community Hub, Shields Road, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE6 1D

The scheme will commence on 1st October 2021.  If you have any queries about property licencing in Newcastle you can contact propertylicensing@newcastle.gov.uk

Landlord training and support will be in place prior to commencement of the scheme to ensure landlords have the opportunity to be equipped with the tools and knowledge to enable compliance.  For more information about landlord support please contact privaterentedservice@newcastle.gov.uk
