Planning Issues In Relation To Hmos-9c8836

Posted on

I wish to address planning issues in relation to Houses of Multiple Occupation. My comments are solely in relation to those with or considering Houses of Multiple Occupation properties in England. Those who have been involved with planning in the past will have come to appreciate that planning is not an exact science there are very much shades of grey in many planning decisions. I have come to appreciate this fully both as a Property Investor and Property Developer. It is a popular misconception that development control impacts only building work this is not the case. Planning permission is a distinct regime with its own legally defined boundaries, it can control: The erection, location, appearance, use and occupation of proposed new buildings. Changes in appearance and size of existing buildings. Changes in the use and occupation of existing buildings or land Under the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 planning permission requires to be sought for material changes in use. What is considered to represent a material change of use will be very much determined by the Local Planning Authority. In respect of Houses of Multiple Occupation planning permission is not required where the development involved falls within the same class in Use Classes Order between the existing and proposed. Use Classes Order defines use class C3 as a dwelling house (whether or not as a sole or main residence) (a) by a single person or people living together as a family or (b) by not more than six residents living together as a single household where care is provided for residents). There represents no classification within the Use Classes Order for House of Multiple Occupation and therefore effectively these may be considered in a class of their own. Accordingly planning permission would generally be required prior to a dwelling house undergoing a material change of use to a House of Multiple Occupation. The circumstances of each individual case will determine whether there has been a material change of use. The basis of the Local Authorities decision will be determined by whether they consider the occupants live together as a family or a single household. It is essential where you are contemplating investing in a new location that you chat to the Local Planning Department most Local Authorities now have drop-in surgeries for the public to address such questions. It is also advisable to pick up a copy of the Unitary Development Plan which will also provide invaluable information in respect of gaining insight into the Local Authorities interpretation in respect of planning requirements for Houses of Multiple Occupation under its jurisdiction.
