We have received a letter from Oxford City Council.
It appears that they are considering the licensing scheme further. New recommendations will be put to the Executive Board and from them to the full Council in meetings on 18 October. It may be that these recommendations will include the withdrawal of the current licensing designation (due to come into force on 22 October) and the making of some alternative designations to introduce HMO licensing over time.
PainSmith Solicitors welcome any reconsideration by the Council of its HMO licensing scheme.
