Members of the public can have their say on plans designed to ensure private sector rented accommodation in South Kesteven meets required standards.

The district council last week launched a six-week public consultation on a draft Private Sector Housing Enforcement policy.

Changes to national legislation mean the council could impose civil penalties of up to £30,000 on landlords whose properties fail to come up to scratch for offences including licensing, overcrowding, failing to comply with an improvement notice or breaching a banning order.

The consultation closes on September 14. Complete online at: www.southkesteven.gov.uk/privatesectorhousingenforcementpolicy or call 01476 406502.
