Housing is a key priority for Birmingham residents and the City Council, and it plays a significant part in residents’ lives. Over the last decade, there has been a significant increase in the number of properties in Birmingham that are rented out by private landlords. The importance of good quality, private sector rented accommodation cannot be underestimated, and so Birmingham City Council is now consulting on a proposal to designate parts of the city as subject to a selective licensing scheme for most private rented properties.
You can read about the proposals for the new scheme in the Council’s consultation document, which is available at: birminghambeheard.org.uk/place/selective-licensing-consultation. To give your feedback, please complete this questionnaire by 9AM on 4 January 2022.
Birmingham City Council has appointed Opinion Research Services (ORS), an independent research company, to manage the questionnaire responses and other consultation feedback. ORS will produce an independent consultation report in which feedback from individual members of the public will be anonymous, but views from organisations or people acting in their official capacity may be attributed.
All the questions are entirely optional, and any information that you provide in response to this consultation will be processed by ORS in accordance with the latest Data Protection regulations. Information will only be used to inform this consultation and any personal information that could identify you will be kept for no more than 1 year after any decisions have been finalised.
