'COMMUNITY FEELS THREATENED' BY ADDITIONAL LICENSING PROPOSALS'
'Community feels threatened': Shad Ali, who organised an open meeting over the issue
Peter Blackburn writes in the Nottingham Post, Friday, 24 May, 2013 ...
Landlords have fallen out with the city council over a "discriminatory" licensing plan.
The row between the authority and Asian landlords is over moves to for additional licensing for houses of multiple occupation in the city.
The landlords say that, as many of these houses are owned by Asians, the plan amounts to discrimination.
And they say that councillors turned down the chance to meet them on the issue.
The council denies the claims.
