Slough Borough Council hosting workshops on private rental licensing scheme plans

Two new licensing schemes to tackle issues like anti-social behaviour, overcrowding and sub-standard accommodation in the private rented sector are being proposed by Slough Borough Council.

The aim of the schemes is to allow the council to focus action against landlords who ignore their responsibilities while providing light touch regulation for those who are compliant.

Public consultation workshops explaining the proposals will be held on Thursday, January 10 at Chalvey Community Centre, The Green from 12.30pm to 2.30pm and then again at 6pm to 8pm.

A session for tenants will be held from 2pm to 6pm at The Curve in William Street on Tuesday, January 15.

Managing or estate agents and landlords are invited to a workshop at The Curve from 2pm to 6pm on Thursday, January 17.

Contact 01753 875540 or privatesectorhousing@slough.gov.uk to book a place or for further information.

    It is interesting that the priority in Slough is not building high rise high density housing to reduce homelessness and make accommodation more affordable (which it could easily do on the Montem and old library sites) - it is doing low density developments and hotels that can make the council money so it can move into its new council palace with its excessive temp worker costs and try to force landlords that compete with their property developments to leave Slough.
