Charnwood Borough Council is proposing to introduce two private sector housing licensing schemes.

  • Additional Licensing scheme
  • Selective Licensing scheme

What is additional licensing?

The Council is proposing to introduce a borough wide additional licensing scheme for all houses in multiple occupation (HMOs). It will cover all HMOs, irrespective of the number of stories that are occupied by three or four unrelated persons and all Section 257 HMOs (buildings converted into self-contained flats) where the building is wholly occupied by tenants.

The additional licensing consultation has now closed.

More information can be found on the additional licensing consultation webpage.

What is selective licensing?

The Council is proposing to introduce a selective licensing scheme in the Hastings and Lemyngton Wards to improve property conditions, management standards and to improve the quality of our neighbourhoods and to support safe, inclusive and cohesive communities.

The selective licensing consultation has now closed.

More information can be found on the selective licensing consultation webpage.
