Private Sector Housing Policy 2016-2019

Private Sector Housing has become increasingly important in Oxford, with a sharp increase in the number of properties that are privately rented in the last 10 years. Oxford City Council has been actively involved in the sector, for example implementing the first citywide HMO licensing scheme in England, but there is still more that can be done.

The draft Private Sector Housing Policy outlines the priorities for Oxford City Council and our proposed actions and we invite feedback from as many people as possible, including tenants, local residents and landlords.
