Selective Landlord Licensing Scheme in Margate Extended

From the TDC website via A Better Cliftonville

On 19 January 2016, the council’s Cabinet made a further five year selective licensing designation in respect of parts of Cliftonville West and Margate Central. The designation concerns an area substantially similar to that already designated, but now includes additional properties in both Trinity Square and Northdown Road. A selective licensing designation requires private landlords to obtain a licence and effectively manage their properties.
The current designation expires on 20 April 2016 and this new designation will come into force the day after. As such, there will be no break between designations and the selective licensing scheme will be continuous. More information is available on the council’s website, where a copy of the full proposal is available. The public notice and a copy of the designation are also online.
Since the introduction of selective licensing  in 2011, the area has seen declining numbers of empty properties, less anti-social behaviour and a greater number of well-managed and safe homes. The expected benefits of a further designation include an improvement in the social, economic and housing conditions in the area, together with a reduction in crime, anti-social behaviour and deprivation.
Deputy Leader of the Council and Cabinet Member for Community Services, Cllr Lin Fairbrass, said: “While much has already been achieved through selective licensing, it was clear that the existing designation was not going to be enough. The new designation will give the council further opportunity to help the community in Cliftonville. As the recent public consultation revealed a high level of support for a new designation, this was clearly the right decision. We hope this will lead to a better quality of life for residents in all tenures.”
