The Council is reviewing the existing Additional HMO licensing scheme that is in place in Oldfield, Westmoreland and Widcombe wards.
The scheme was introduced in January 2014 and lasts until December 2018. It requires all multiple occupancy shared houses to be licensed by the Council in the designated area and meet minimum standards of safety, welfare and management. As the scheme only lasts for a maximum of 5 years, the Council are seeking views to influence whether the scheme is stopped, renewed or extended elsewhere in the City.
Both Will and Shaun campaigned for and continue to support the additional licensing scheme. It has improved the standards of homes for tenants and meant that there have been better management arrangements in place.

All completed questionnaires will go into a draw to win one of five prizes. Each prize will be £30 worth of High Street Gift Vouchers (redeemable at top High Street retailers).
