Selective Licensing Consultation

Selective Licensing Consultation

A 12 week public consultation on whether selective licensing should be introduced in one area of Burnley, and existing schemes extended in three other areas has been launched.  This consultation started 3rd September and will run until 26th November 2018.  The areas affected are:

1.       Daneshouse & Stoneyholme

2.       Queensgate

3.       Gannow

4.       Trinity

The current Trinity, Gannow and Queensgate selective licensing areas are due to end in 2019.  There is an improving picture within these areas with moderate rises in house prices, reducing empty properties and anti-social behavior along with environmental crime showing a downward trend.  Despite these improvements the proposed selective licensing areas are still in low housing demand, when compared to the Borough.  Not continuing with selective licensing at this stage would present a risk that these improvements will not be sustained or built upon.

The council is also proposing to introduce selective licensing in the Daneshouse and Stoneyholme area due to the low demand for housing and poor property conditions.

The council wants to gather the views of residents, landlords and other interested parties before making a final decision in January 2019.  The council is using a number of measures to make sure it gets as much feedback as possible:

A questionnaire will be hand delivered to all houses in the proposed areas

  • All known landlords operating in the proposed areas will be sent a letter inviting them to complete an online questionnaire.  To complete an on line questionnaire please follow the links below:
