BCC launches #Haveyoursay events on selective licensing scheme for private sector accommodation

Cllr Shabrana Hussain talks about proposals for a licensing scheme for privately rented housing:

As the Cabinet Member for Homes and Neighbourhoods I am keen to hear your views on our proposed selective licensing scheme for privately rented housing across 25 wards in the city.

To facilitate this the council has launched a new social media campaign #Haveyoursay, will be sending leaflets to every resident in the 25 affected wards and is running three listening events

The social media campaign and the leaflet, a copy of which is attached, is designed to generate as many responses as possible to the consultation which ends on 4 January 2022.

The listening events are also designed to engage residents, tenants and landlords but in addition give them the opportunity to ask any questions they may have

We are holding 2 virtual events and one in person which I will be chairing.

A space on these events can be booked by clicking on the links below.  It is very quick to register and only takes a minute or so to do.

We will hold additional events in December if demand is high or these dates are unsuitable for residents. 

I look forward to hearing from as many of you as possible, either at the virtual events or in person at The Birmingham and Midland Institute
