Blackburn & Darwen: Griffin selective licensing area to launch in New Year

Landlords operating in the Griffin area of Blackburn & Darwen must have licences from 18th January 2013 onwards, after council bosses rubber-stamped proposals for a selective licensing scheme.

The scheme has been introduced because of a perceived low housing demand, and licences will cost £750 per property for the five years of the scheme. Landlords who refuse to apply for a licence could be fined as much as £20,000.
