Proposed Selective Licensing Scheme - Questionnaire for those Residents and Businesses in the Wider Consultation Area

Closed 23 Feb 2018

Opened 27 Nov 2017

Feedback updated 14 Jun 2018

We asked

We ran a consultation between Monday 27th November 2017 and Friday 23rd February 2018 to seek opinions on our proposals for introducing Selective Licensing of private rented properties on London Road, Abbeydale Road and Chesterfield Road. We ran four questionnaires (available online and on paper), separately targeted at tenants/residents, landlords and businesses in the area where Selective Licensing is proposed and also residents and businesses in the surrounding area. We also held a series of ten events open to the public to come and have their say.

You said

We received a total of 872 completed questionnaires and these and the other responses we received, at the public meetings, by email, and formal submissions, have been written up into a Consultation Report which can be read on the Council’s website – The responses we received to the questions in the questionnaires are summarised in the Report.

We did

We are proposing to proceed with Selective Licensing but in direct response to the consultation and evidence gathered by the service a new, reduced designation area is being proposed and changes have been proposed to the fee structure. The proposals go to the Council’s Cabinet on the 20th June, with the scheme to start 1st November 2018.  Details on the proposals can be read in the Cabinet Report which is available here.


This questionnaire is about a proposed Selective Licensing scheme which aims to support landlords in providing safe, well managed homes.

Please note: This questionnaire is for people who live close to the proposed Selective Licensing area and for other stakeholders and agencies. It is not for people who live in the proposed Selective Licensing area itself. There are specific questionnaires for people who live in the proposed Selective Licensing area.
