We're committed to increasing the number of homes in Barnet and making sure that they're of a decent standard.

Barnet Council consulted on an Additional Licensing Scheme. This was approved by the Housing Committee on 1 February and the designation signed on 4 April 2016. This scheme came into force on 5 July 2016. You can view the Public Notice. For more information on the consultation for an Additional Licensing Scheme, go to engage.barnet.gov.uk.  If you're a landlord, find out more about licensing schemes.
