Selective licensing for Doncaster landlords

#1
Hi everyone. I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this but I've just read an article (link below) from my local free press about charging some landlords a fee for a landlord license. Has anybody encountered this before anywhere else? It isn't in my particular area although the article intimates that they may spread the scheme to surrounding areas.
