Consultation is being delivered for the Royal Borough by M.E.L. Research, an independent research company and is online. They will also be hosting for the two open events where you can air your views. A limited postal survey to residents within the proposed area and the adjoining wards will also be carried out.
To have your say and complete the survey, please go here melresearch.co.uk/greenwichprs from 17 February.
You will also find documents, which detail a proposal to help you comment on the consultation. The materials include a map of the proposed area in the overview of the proposed scheme, there proposed licensing conditions and fees and F.A.Q.s.
Once the consultation is completed, they publish the report and take into account the views expressed before making a final decision.
The Royal Borough of Greenwich wants your views on a proposal to introduce a new Selective Licensing scheme in a designated area. Good quality rented accommodation can provide decent places for our residents. However, the Council is aware that this type of accommodation can also be poorly managed. The selective licensing schemes aim to improve housing conditions in privately rented properties and reduce anti-social behaviour, deprivation and crime.
The consultation will run until midnight on 26 April 2020. To complete the online survey, please click here.
Selective Licensing is the licensing of a single household private rented property. The Royal Borough already operates a borough-wide H.M.O. Licensing scheme.
