Selective licensing in Scarborough from 1 June 2024

This is a selective licensing scheme for privately rented properties in parts of Castle, Falsgrave and Stepney, and Northstead divisions.

The scheme will come into effect on 1 June 2024 and be in place until 31 May 2029.

The scheme will require landlords who privately rent out properties in the designated area of Scarborough to get a licence from us. Landlords must meet a range of licensing conditions, including safety checks, and have appropriate management arrangements in place.

More information about the scheme and how landlords will be able to apply for a licence will be added in advance of the scheme start date.
