Days of Action & Safer Streets

Julian best

The Safer Housing and Licensing Teams have been attending Days of Actions in Neighbourhoods over the last few months.

We have been carrying out inspections and compliance checks on proprieties. The next events are in Castle, Arboretum, Radford, Lenton and Wollaton East and we will also be carrying out work in those areas.

As well as housing inspections, Julian (pictured), our Burglary Reduction officer will be out and about in the parts of Arboretum, Lenton and Hyson Green as part of these days too. 

He will be door knocking and speaking to tenants and leaving information at homes that are eligible for free security upgrades to help stop burglaries.

These measure could include:

  • Free security upgrades such as new locks, alarms and CCTV at up to 500 homes
  • Free video doorbells to up to 375 student properties.

Landlords and tenants of eligible properties will be contacted, if they haven’t already, to look at what safety measures we could provide.

More details on the scheme here.

More details on the event will be released soon, including the agenda – so watch this space.

Licence Fee Breakdown

Housing licensing

One of the asks from the Landlord and Managing Agent Liaison Groups was to create a document that shows the licence fee breakdown and what the fees for Selective, Mandatory and Additional licensing are used for.

We have now created this document and you can find it underneath the Mandatory Licensing section on the below page

Licensing for Landlords
