Government cancels Liverpool’s Citywide Licensing Scheme

13th January 2020

Responding to the news that Communities Secretary, Robert Jenrick, has rejected an application to keep Liverpool’s Citywide Licensing Scheme in place for another five years, Isobel Thomson, safeagent CEO said:
Since its inception, safeagent has been a co-regulation partner to Liverpool City Council’s Citywide Licensing Scheme. We were pleased to be involved in the initiative which has helped to improve property and management standards in Liverpool’s Private Rented Sector. 
“We are now looking forward to working in partnership with Central and Local Government, within a more coherent national framework of regulation and enforcement. It is our hope that sufficient resources will be made available to ensure that standards in the PRS in Liverpool and across England continue to rise.”
