your views matter

Residents of Stockton-on-Tees Borough are being reminded to have their say on plans to improve private sector housing standards in two areas of the Borough. 

The Council launched a consultation on plans to introduce Selective Licensing of private rented housing within Central Stockton and North Thornaby on 30 July.    

There is still time to submit your views before the public consultation closes on 4pm on Monday 8 October.

Councillor Nigel Cooke, Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Housing, said: “We are really keen to hear people’s views on these proposals, which if implemented will take a robust stance on improving standards in the private rented housing sector.

“We believe these proposals will greatly help us improve the areas concerned and will bring lasting benefits for all - the landlords, residents and the wider local community. Your views are important to us so make sure you have your say.”
