Licensing schemes for private rented properties in Redbridge

Redbridge Council is currently consulting on proposals to introduce two licensing schemes for private rented properties. Selective Licensing requires properties rented to single family households in specified wards to be licensed. Licensing aims to protect tenants by improving housing standards and the management of private rented accommodation and reducing anti-social behaviour.

The first scheme includes properties in Valentines and Clementswood wards. The second scheme includes the wards; Goodmayes, Snaresbrook, Newbury, Cranbrook, Chadwell, Aldborough, Loxford, Roding, Mayfield, Seven Kings, Fairlop and Church End.

We are keen to consult widely and ensure that residents, business, landlords, etc. get to have a say on the proposals.
We are grateful for any assistance you can provide in publicising the consultation amongst the business community.

The consultation closes 16 October.
