Consultations & surveys Consultation: proposals for having licences for privately rented houses in Crumpsall


We held a ten week consultation from 19 August to 31 October 2016 to find out what good housing means to local people. This information was used to decide if we need a selective licensing scheme in north Manchester. 

Read the executive meeting minutes (Item 5)

After reviewing comments from landlords and residents, we have decided to formally designate a selective licensing area within Crumpsall. This means that landlords and managing agents in specific parts of Crumpsall will need a licence to rent a home. If you are a landlord in the area, you have up to Monday, 13 March 2017 to apply for a licence.

The scheme aims to improve management standards and conditions of private rented housing and support the reduction of anti social behaviour. For now, we are focussing on a small part of Crumpsall, covering an area of around 400 private sector homes.
