Property Licensing in Newcastle 2024 - Selective and Additional Licensing Schemes

Published: Wednesday 13 March 2024

We are consulting on proposals for new property licensing schemes and are seeking your feedback on our proposals.

Property licensing schemes are intended to raise standards in the private sector, making landlords more accountable, improving property management and stabilising communities, tackling antisocial behaviour and poverty in communities. 

What we would like you to do

We are consulting on proposals which could see new selective licensing schemes in Lemington, Denton Court and Columbia Grange and amended schemes in Cowgate and the West End being put in place for another five years.

The plans also include a new additional licensing scheme for smaller HMOs across the whole city.

We would like to hear from anyone who lives or works in Newcastle or anyone who owns or manages a private rented property.

You can take part in the survey below.

If you have any queries about the schemes or the survey, or you need this information in a different format such as large print, please contact us at:

Please give us your views about this by 29 May 2024

You can find out more about property licensing schemes here.
