Manchester Starts New Selective Licensing Consultation

After selective licensing was given the go ahead in the north Manchester ward of Crumpsall (see details below), a second consultation has started for a new selective licensing scheme in the south Manchester areas of Moss Side and Rusholme. If approved this scheme could cost landlords up to £750 per home.

The council is running several drop in events for residents, landlords, tenants, and interested parties to speak to officers from the Council about their concerns or queries on the proposal:

  • 15 February 2017, 2.00pm - 8.00pm - Trinity House Community Resource Centre Grove Close (off Platt Lane), Manchester M14 5AA
  • 15 March 2017, 2.00pm - 8.00pm - Moss Side Millennium Powerhouse 140 Raby St, Manchester M14 4SL
  • 13th April 2017, 2.00pm - 8.00pm - The Birch Community Centre Brighton Grove, Manchester M14 5JT

The closing date of the consultation is Friday 21st April 2017, the RLA will be replying opposing the scheme, as we do with all licensing consultations, and we urge our members to do the same.
