Draft Local Planning Guidance Note 5: Houses in Multiple Occupation

Why are we doing this?: 

The purpose of the draft revision Local Planning Guidance Note 5: Houses in Multiple Occupation is to set out criteria for how proposals for houses in multiple occupation (HMO) will be assessed so that smaller/more affordable units of accommodation can continue to be developed whilst at the same time trying to avoid over concentrations of HMOs in specific areas. The guidance also sets out the important planning requirements for HMOs, including minimum external areas for large HMOs.

In parallel with the proposed up addition an update to Local Planning Guidance Note 16: Parking is proposed.

What do we want to know?:
