plans to improve housing standards in privately rented homes.
Newcastle City Council
is consulting on re-designating Selective Licensing Schemes for private rented
accommodation in Byker and Greater High Cross.
Before we can introduce a licensing scheme, we have to show why we think
this kind of scheme is needed, what kind of problems it is trying to tackle and
why we think Selective Licensing is the only option left. We must consult with
all affected people, such as tenants, residents, landlords, managing agents,
businesses, charities, Police, Fire Service, local councillors etc. It is very
important that we gather as many views as possible and that we give proper
consideration to these views.
To make sure that we consult fairly we are using a variety of methods to
reach stakeholders, these include on-line questionnaires, and virtual events
The formal consultation process starts on Monday 9 November
2020 and lasts for 12 weeks, ending on Sunday 31 January 2021.
If you want to understand more about the proposal, we are holding two live online events using Microsoft Teams where you will be given the opportunity to watch a presentations and ask questions. The next meeting takes place on Monday 11th January 2021 between 12 and 1pm. You can log in live and watch the event, or you can go view the event any time after it's taken place.
