Proposed HMO Licence and Conditions
We have received our first Proposed HMO Licence from Sheffield City Council which includes a 'Schedule of Conditions'. The date for any representations to be made to the council about the proposed licence conditions is 12 August 2009.
A large part of licence conditions relate to fire standards, however although according to the council officer dealing with this application, fire standards were finally agreed 'last week' no standards have yet been published on the councils website.The council officer in question stated during the telephone conversation that he would e-mail a copy, however to date non has been forthcoming.
My questions to you are as follows:
1 From a legal point of view should I be provided with published finalised fire standards prior or in conjunction with the Proposed Licence to enable me to examine the conditions imposed on the licence?
2 Considering the councils correspondence is dated July 22nd with an imposed time limit to make any representations by August 12th have the council fulfilled their legal obligations in this respect?
3 How would the timescales affect any possible appeal to the RPT?
