Dear Mr Daniel,
Freedom of Information Request 542790 (Revised)
Thank you for your recent request for information. Your request was actioned under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 in which you requested the following information –
The number of Complaints, Inspections and Actions taken regarding dwelling houses in Liverpool council area, 2014, 2015 and 2016
Liverpool City Council confirms that it holds information relevant to the terms of your request, our response being set out below –
The Liverpool FOI stats in the above chart show Liverpool’s enforcement productivity went DOWN, after Licensing, wasting a lot of license fees on administrating the scheme and achieving no outcomes.
Anti-Licensing for Landlords group:
There’s a number of members posting that have expended energy and hold a deep interest in the manner and indiscriminate way that licensing is being introduced, so I am starting to form an Action group.
Within such a group, we could pool our resources and focus on either an individual or small number of schemes to scrutinize their process or manner in which the scheme has been operated, perhaps submit several FOI’s to probe their housing enforcement performance, pre and post licensing. I’d invite those interested in discussing further to contact me via email.
With Property118’s blessing, here is my email for those interested in forming such a group.
