A MOTION calling for changes in how Cherwell District Council approaches the private rented sector will be debated.

The motion, submitted by Labour councillor Barry Richards, calls for a new license scheme for private landlords and a dedicated forum where private tenants can raise their concerns with the authority.

It comes following consultation by the council on its new housing strategy, which ran out in 2017.

Members of public are welcome to sit in on the meeting at Bodicote House, Banbury, on Monday, February 25, from 6.30pm.
