New draft planning guidance: houses in multiple occupation

New draft planning guidance: houses in multiple occupation

We're working on a new draft supplementary planning document on developing houses in multiple occupation.

We had a consultation on the Managing the development of houses in multiple occupation (HMO): draft supplementary planning document (pdf, 721KB) (opens new window) from 3 February 2020 to 20 March 2020.

The guidance will support existing Local Plan policy used to decide planning applications for this type of accommodation.

The existing policy aims to encourage balanced communities in Bristol by preventing harmful concentrations of HMOs.

The guidance will help to implement the policy by identifying situations where harmful HMO concentrations might arise.

Feedback from the consultation will help shape the content of the guidance. The next version will be made available for final comments later this year.
