Legislation will come into force in April 2018 enabling local authorities to pursue banning orders for a number of specified offences under the Housing Act 2004.

This report seeks approval to use banning orders and make entries onto the database as laid out in the Housing and Planning Act 2016 as a tool to assist the Council in improving standards within the private rented sector.
