Bristol City Council (BCC) are proposing to extend the current discretionary licensing scheme (operating in part of Easton/Stapleton Rd area) to St George West and Eastville wards. These wards exhibit some of the highest levels of private renting in the city along with some of the poorest property conditions, and a licensing scheme could significantly improve housing standards.

As part of the process of determining whether to proceed with declaring a further ‘Discretionary Licensing’ area BCC need to undertake extensive consultation, with landlords, agents, local residents and other organisations such as the police.
