Enfield Council is consulting on a proposal to introduce two new private rented property licensing schemes.

The consultation will finish at midnight on 29 November 2019. To complete the online survey, please click here

The two proposed schemes have been designed to improve the conditions of private rented property, reduce anti-social behaviour and introduce landlord property management standards and tenancy practices.

The Council is proposing to introduce the following licensing schemes:

1. The first proposed scheme is for Selective Licensing, which would operate in the following thirteen wards: Bowes, Edmonton Green, Enfield Highway, Enfield Lock, Haselbury, Jubilee, Lower Edmonton, Palmers Green, Ponders End, Southbury, Southgate Green, Turkey Street and Upper Edmonton;

A further proposed selective licensing scheme, would operate in Chase ward.

2. A second proposed scheme is for Additional Licensing for Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMOs) which will apply to the whole borough.
