Barnet's Additional Licensing consultation

Barnet Council is continuing on with its goal to introduce ‘Additional Licensing’ of its HMOs.

The Council is proposing that any PRS property, house or flat, occupied by more than one person will require a licence. The scheme also proposes to include 'bedsit type accommodation and other properties where facilities are shared, and some kinds of buildings consisting of poorly self-contained flats.'

Chairman of Barnet's Housing Committee, Tom Davey commented  “This consultation is about some very important proposals aimed at helping to make sure the quality of private rented accommodation in the borough is high.

“We are keen to hear people’s views and I would like to encourage as many people as possible to take the time to consider the proposals and let us know what they think.”

The  consultation period runs until 17 September 2015, so get your opinions heard.

The consultation questionnaire is on Barnet Council's engage website or call them on 020 8359 7454 to give them piece of your mind.
