Bristol Local Plan: Managing the development of houses in multiple occupation - Draft Supplementary Planning Document

Closes 20 Mar 2020

Opened 3 Feb 2020


We are asking for your views on new planning guidance relating to the development of houses in multiple occupation (HMOs). The new draft Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) will support existing Local Plan policy used to decide planning applications for this type of accommodation. The policy aims to encourage balanced communities in Bristol by preventing harmful concentrations of HMOs. This new draft SPD will help to implement the policy by identifying situations where harmful HMO concentrations might arise.

Why We Are Consulting

The results of the consultation will help shape the content of the final published guidance.
