Selective and Additional Schemes to Come into Force

Redbridge Council has taken the decision to introduce both selective and additional licensing schemes following evidence and views gathered during a twelve week extensive consultation exercise, which generated more than 900 responses (including the RLAs).

The selective scheme will cover Clementswood and Valentines wards whilst the additional scheme will be borough wide. Both are being introduced in an aim to improve standards of accommodation and help protect residents from anti-social behaviour.

The implementation date for the additional scheme is 12th April 2017 and the selective will start 2 months later on 13th July 2017. The proposed fee for a five-year period for both schemes is £500 per property, however an early bird 50 per cent discount is being offered.

The council is currently seeking approval on a second selective licensing scheme to include 12 other wards. If approved the second scheme will be implemented in September 2017 and cover:

  • Aldborough
  • Chadwell
  • Churchend
  • Cranbrook
  • Fairlop
  • Goodmayes
  • Loxford
  • Mayfield
  • Newbury
  • Roding
  • Seven Kings
  • Snaresbrook

We will alert our members if the consultation goes ahead.
