Sheffield – Selective Licensing opposition

Large opposition to selective licensing scheme.

The majority of landlords who responded to a consultation objected to the plan.
A report put to the council's cabinet said the aim of the scheme was to improve standards of private rented housing by ensuring landlords complied with regulations and reduce anti-social behaviour by preventing overcrowding.
The report said the quality of housing in Page Hall was "generally poorer" than in other areas of Sheffield and that some landlords were letting properties "irresponsibly".

The council said 66% of residents who responded to a consultation were in favour of the proposals, while 75% of landlords were opposed to it.
