Consultation proposal on licensing scheme for private landlords

Woking Council has proposed a three year licensing scheme for private landlords in some parts of the Town Centre and Maybury areas.

A questionnaire was available for people to comment on the licensing scheme proposal from 1 February 2017 for a 12 week period and closed on 30 April 2017. It was hosted by a third party market research company and was completely independent of the Council. We are now reviewing all of the responses sent in. A decision on whether to proceed with implementing the licensing scheme will be made by the executive in the summer.
