Liverpool City Council has begun consultation on selective licensing in the city. The consultation will close on 26 May 2019.

The proposals for selective licensing within Liverpool will be city-wide and will look to build on the existing scheme that ends in 2020.

The council has provided guidance on the proposed fee structure which will be spilt into two parts in keeping with recent case law. The council will also be holding public sessions during the consultation at St George's Hall, Liverpool and further details can be found on the website.

Further details about the pricing and scheme’s details can be found here and here respectively.
