NEW legislation, energy efficiency and homelessness reduction are on the agenda for the next Private Landlords' Forum.

Private landlords across Bromsgrove and Redditch are invited to the free event, which will include time for questions and feedback.

Experts from organisations like Bromsgrove District Council, the National Landlords' Association and BDHT will be on hand.

The council's strategic housing manager Derek Allen said: "This is a popular event and feedback is always positive as it enables our private landlords to keep up to date with current legislation, prepare for changing legislation and to network with their colleagues and experts in their field.”

The forum will be held at Parkside in Market Street on April 26 from 2.30pm to 6.15pm. To reserve a seat email or phone 01527 881499.

Parking is available at the pay and display opposite Parkside.
