Since then, they have worked closely with residents and landlords as well as other agencies such as the police and other housing providers to make improvements. They would like to ask for your views about how you believe landlord licensing has contributed towards improving the area and also to find out what things in the community concern you the most. Please find below a link to the online consultation questionnaire for your completion; (you may need to copy and paste this into your browser) The findings from this consultation will be used to help decide what future actions need to be taken and how they can look to improve the licensing scheme. Please take this opportunity to have your say as it is important that they hear everybody’s views. To ensure personal information about you is secure, all of your answers will be treated in the strictest confidence and will be stored securely.
