The Final Draft HMO SPD has been now been published alongside a Report of Consultation. The Report of Consultation sets out the responses received to the initial Draft HMO SPD and how they have been taken into account in the final version.

Representations are invited to be made about the Final Draft HMO SPD and the Report of Consultation between the 26 April 2021 and 5:00pm on 7 June 2021. Further information is available on the council’s consultation portal.

The Draft Housing SPD has been published for consultation and provides further guidance on the implementation of policies in the Local Plan, including SC4 ‘residential mix’, SC5 ‘affordable homes’ and SC6 ‘rural exceptions housing for local needs’ of the Local Plan Strategy. This is the first stage of consultation on the SPD which, once adopted, will be a material consideration in decision-taking.

The consultation will run from 26 April 2021 to 5:00pm on 7 June 2021. Further information is available on the council’s website.
