Consultation and licensing scheme documents

The landlord licensing scheme has successfully improved neighbourhoods within Gateshead since 2007.

A public consultation was undertaken from March until June 2017 on proposals to introduce selective landlord licensing for:

  • The Avenues, implementation from 2018-19
  • Parts of Central Bensham, implementation from late 2017.

The documents below provide information in relation to the evidence base to licence landlords in the designated areas, including documents from the public consultation undertaken and documents detailing our enforcement policy and the service that licence holders can expect to receive.
