Drop-in sessions for landlords and tenants over Council Selective Licensing proposals
Council officials will be holding drop-in sessions for landlords, letting agents and tenants over proposals to introduce Selective Licensing to parts of East and West Marsh.
The proposals, which are currently open to public consultation on the Council’s website and in Lincs Inspire Libraries, would see landlords with properties in parts of these areas require licenses to continue to rent the dwellings.
It is hoped that the scheme will help combat some of the issues facing these communities, as well as helping to root out so-called rogue landlords and poor tenants.
Drop-in sessions will be held for landlords, letting agents, tenants and members of the public.
Drop-in sessions for tenants and the public will be held on:
- Wednesday 29th January from 9am to 7.30pm at West Marsh Community Centre;
- Thursday 30th January from 9am to 5pm at Grimsby Neighbourhood Centre;
- Wednesday 5th February from 5pm to 7.30pm at Grimsby Neighbourhood Centre
Drop-in sessions for landlords will be held on:
- Tuesday 21st January from 5.30pm to 7.30pm at Grimsby Town Hall;
- Monday 27th January from 9am to 5pm at Grimsby Town Hall
The consultation is available to complete on the Council’s website at www.nelincs.gov.uk/have-your-say.
Alternatively, paper copies of the consultation can be completed in Lincs Inspire Libraries and the Council’s Customer Access Point in Grimsby and Immingham
The consultation opened on Thursday 16 January 2020 and will continue for 10 weeks, ending on Thursday 26 March 2020.
