Landlords in Coventry are being warned the council has begun consultation on plans to introduce licences costing £773 a property.

The authority wants to introduce the scheme in the St Michaels area of the city.

In documents publicising the scheme the council says it has selected the ward as there is a high percentage of private renters and the area has a large number of badly managed and poor quality properties.

Details of the proposals, including a map of the area affected and online questionnaires are available by clicking here.

The consultation will run until November 6th with a meeting being held for landlords at the council house in Earl Street on September 13th, between 6.30pm-8pm.
