The update on Selective licensing has been published.
The Council are disappointed that there have only been 4 applications for the voluntary scheme so far. A voluntary scheme was suggested by landlords
as an alternative to Selective Licensing so are hopeful that landlords would show their support of it
Now that Selective Licensing processes are up and running, they are starting to work in the Voluntary area
They are also keeping a close eye on neighbouring areas such as Darnall, Tinsley, Wincobank and Grimesthorpe to assess whether
they are experiencing similar issues in the private rented sector.
