Nottingham Selective Licensing has inspected 600 houses in 3 years with 76 staff. One man in an MOT station could have inspected 6240 cars in that time.
Nottingham Selective Licensing has just published its mid-scheme review.
They’re inspecting on average 3 houses per year per member of staff. Most businesses would go bust at that rate.
So 1 staff is doing 1 inspection every 4 months. How is that improving houses?
270 houses have been improved.
There have been 22,000 Licence applications at an average of let’s say £700 per licence. That’s £15.5 million from licence payers from tenants rent increases to fix 270 houses!
Had licensing not been introduced, the Council would still have improved roughly 270 houses (which sounds low anyway).
