Council Relaunches Additional Licensing Consultation

Hounslow Council has relaunched an additional licensing consultation, after the RLA and Safe Agent threatened to launch a judicial review over the original ‘flawed’ consultation.

In September, Hounslow Council u-turned on plans to introduce an additional licensing scheme in the borough, after pressure from the RLA and SafeAgent.

The RLA threatened the Council with a judicial review over concerns that the consultation on the additional licensing scheme plan was flawed.

This included that the council had failed to provide information upon which the plans for the scheme were being made, and also that the council had failed to outline, as required by law, how such a licensing scheme would be consistent with the council’s housing strategy.

Now, the Council has relaunched the consultation, which will close on 27th December 2019.
