Topics for discussion

UPDATE at 26 February
The meeting will open with a presentation on the landlord licensing scheme consultation in Croydon.  Council officers will be on hand to explain the scheme, issues and options, to answer questions and listen to your views.

This scheme affects everyone. If you are a landlord, a tenant or prospective landlord or tenant of a privately rented property you’ll want to have a say. Council officers are also interested in hearing the views of residents and businesses located by private rental properties who may be affected by the decisions taken.

“…Croydon has a higher proportion of private rented properties than the national average. Evidence from the Council’s current scheme also shows that there are significant issues with property conditions, home hazards and deprivation.

In wards where the level of private renting is slightly lower than the national average, there is still evidence of anti-social behaviour that appears to be linked to privately rented properties.”

The rest of the meeting will be given to general discussions on topics people attending wish to raise or notices people wish to give about what is going on in the community.
