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
  • Aston
  • Balsall Heath West
  • Birchfield
  • Bordesley Green
  • Bordesley and Highgate
  • Bournbrook and Selly Park
  • Edgbaston
  • Gravelly Hill
  • Handsworth
  • Heartlands
  • Holyhead
  • Ladywood
  • Lozells
  • North Edgbaston
  • Small Heath
  • Soho and Jewellery Quarter
  • South Yardley
  • Sparkbrook and Balsall Heath
  • Sparkhill
  • 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.
