Following the successful application to the Department of Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, Birmingham City Council has been granted permission for a selective licensing scheme.
Ot will cover 25 of Birmingham’s 69 wards which will start on 5 June 2023.
The 25 wards are:
- Acocks Green
- Alum Rock
- Balsall Heath West
- Bordesley Green
- Bordesley and Highgate
- Bournbrook and Selly Park
- Gravelly Hill
- North Edgbaston
- Small Heath
- Soho and Jewellery Quarter
- South Yardley
- Sparkbrook and Balsall Heath
- Stockland Green
- Tyseley and Hay Mills
- Ward End
- Yardley West and Stechford
The Council expect landlords will be able to apply for a licence from 22 May 2023.
Each licence will cost £700 and last for five years, and landlords that have more than one property will need a license for each property they own.
Enforcement of the scheme will start from 4 September 2023 to enable landlords in the affected areas sufficient time to apply for a licence.
