Selective Licencing

I see there are several other posts concerning Selective Licencing. My local council, Southend on Sea announced to me, in a letter to my rented flat, that they had gone through a gargantuan process to introduce it. I checked on the relevant laws - The Housing Act 2004 and discovered that my ward ’ Chalkwell’ in NO WAY qualified for this scheme. I made a short video on youtube.

Can anyone give me an opinion on my accuracy? It seems to me to be irrefutable that this council are wrong!

Sorry but no time to look at the video. Is your area listed on the Council website as one covered by the Selective licensing scheme?
