Proposal for an Additional Licensing Designation

This consultation closed on 20 July 2018

Consultation Details

Citizens and stakeholders are being asked to give their feedback on the Council’s proposal to introduce a scheme of additional licensing for privately rented Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMOs) in the City.

The Housing Act 2004 requires local housing authorities to license houses in multiple occupation (HMOs) if they are over 3 storeys and accommodate more than five people who form two or more households. This is called mandatory licensing.

The Act also gives authorities the power to introduce licensing schemes for other HMOs if certain conditions are met. Nottingham introduced a 5 year scheme of Additional Licensing of HMOs in 2013, which is due to end in December 2018.

Citizens and stakeholders are being asked to give their feedback on the Council’s proposal to introduce a scheme of additional licensing for privately rented Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMOs) in the City. The Scheme is proposed to run for five years from the end of the current scheme on 31st December 2018 until 31st December 2023, with the potential this could also be renewed again at the end of that period.
