Have your say about Houses in Multiple Occupation before midnight, Friday 8 March


Currently, changes of use between a dwelling house and small Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMO) do not require planning permission. Over the past 10 years, Croydon has lost over 900 family homes to conversion and HMO properties. However, the Croydon Local Plan 2018 identified a need to protect and deliver a large proportion of family homes to meet the estimated need.

Croydon Council would like to implement an Article 4(1) Direction that will withdraw the permitted development right for the change of use from a dwelling house to a small HMO.  If confirmed, this will come into force on 28 January 2020.

If you’d like to respond to this proposal you can email ldf@croydon.gov.uk before​ midnight Friday 8 March 2019.
