Nottingham City Council’s new Selective Licensing Scheme will, in all probability, commence in August 2023. The current scheme, that commenced in 2018 cannot be simply extended, so a new scheme with delicately tweaked boundaries is awaiting the rubber stamp from central government.
The fees for the new scheme are largely in line with the current one, at £880 for non-accredited landlords, and £668 for those that are accredited. The total number of houses in the scheme has dropped slightly, but the scheme appears to be largely the same as the existing one.
In Gedling, the borough council introduced a small Selective License Scheme in 2018 that mainly covered the Netherfield area. Following on from this, a new scheme was created in November 2022 extending the designation to include Carlton Hill, Colwick, Daybrook, and Newstead Village. The designation runs from 1st November 2022 to 31st October 2027.
Costs are slightly lower than those in Nottingham at £700 for non-accredited landlords, and £585 for those with accreditation.
