Thanks to the council for this update
Additional licensing of smaller Houses in Multiple Occupation – 5th November commencement of designation.
As previously publicised, following a report to Housing Committee, the wards of Hanover and Elm Grove, Moulsecoomb and Bevendean, St Peters and North Laine, Hollingdean & Stanmer and Queen’s Park have been designated as subject to additional licensing in relation to smaller Houses in Multiple Occupation of two or more storeys and three or more occupiers.
The designation comes into force from Monday 5 November 2012. It will last for 5 years.
This designation follows extensive consultation and evidence gathering in relation to issues arising with management of smaller Houses in Multiple Occupation in these five wards not already licensed by the Council.
Landlords of smaller HMOs in these five wards that have not already applied for a licence are reminded of the commencement of the additional licensing designation and of the need to apply for a license.
If you have a property in one of the wards and think it may need to be licensed or have any questions, please ring Private Sector Housing on (01273) 293156 or e-mail us on firstname.lastname@example.org. Or visit our website
