An HMO is a “House in Multiple Occupation”. A small HMO is where there are 3-6 occupants who are unrelated. Currently in England no planning permission is required to turn a family home into a small HMO, i.e., it is a “permitted development”.
Reasons for our Petition
The purpose of removing permitted developments for small HMOs is:
• To protect the amenity of large family homes which are in limited supply.
• To protect the loss of character of the Park Hill Road ASLC.
• Control the location and density of small HMOs
• Control the design of small HMOs, e.g., parking, noise, pollution, etc.
We would like the opportunity to address the committee when our
petition is debated.
