Draft Interim Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMO) Developer Advice Note

Decision Maker: Environment Overview & Scrutiny Committee - Expired 13/07/20

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Allweddol decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


To provide interim planning advice to prospective developers of HMOs in relation to the standards, conditions and requirements that should be taken into account in submitting applications. This guidance will need to be published for public and stakeholder consultation in order to have subsequent weight as a material planning consideration. A specific policy relating to HMO development will be published as part of the emerging Local Development Plan but this will not have weight until the plan is adopted, hence the Interim Planning Advice Note.


That the Committee endorses the Cabinet’s decision to approve the content of the Draft Interim HMO Developer Advice Note attached to this report, and for it to be published for public consultation at the earliest possible opportunity.
