Article 4 Direction Areas - Houses in Multiple Occupation

City-wide area within which permitted development rights have been removed for changes of use from family/single household occupancy dwellings to Houses in Multiple Occupation (dwellings shared by between 3 and 6 unrelated occupiers). This means that throughout the City of Nottingham it will generally be necessary to obtain planning permission for conversions from existing family/single occupancy dwellings to Houses in Multiple Occupation. Permitted development rights have been granted by Parliament and Government policy is that they should be withdrawn only in exceptional circumstances, including evidence of a real and specific threat that permitted development is likely to take place which could damage an interest of acknowledged importance.
