Croydon go forward with mandatory licensing

Croydon Councillors are intent on pushing forward with the Croydon-wide landlord licensing scheme, despite Housing Minister, Brandon Lewis's proposed new regulations restricting the power of councils to bring in blanket licensing schemes.

Although Brandon Lewis's proposed restrictions are set to come into play on April 1st, Croydon Council's, Labour leader, Tony Newman insisted defiantly -

‘We won’t be intimidated by a Conservative minister in the last weeks before they leave office. We will implement this scheme. We were elected with a clear mandate to do this and we have had many months of consultation.’

The proposed Croydon mandatory licensing scheme would be applicable borough-wide to an estimated 30,000 private rental properties.
