Draft Local Planning Guidance Note 5: Houses in Multiple Occupation and updates to Local Planning Guidance Note 16: Parking
LPG5: Houses in Multiple Occupation
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. The maximum parking provision for houses in multiple occupation have been updated to take account of the new C4 use class (small HMOs) introduced in February 2016 as well as to align the maximum parking provision for all HMOs more closely with other types of residential development, such as houses and flats. The amendments to LPG16 can be found in red text.
