HMO Consultation

The council is currently reviewing its HMO Licensing Policy with a view to adopting a new Policy for 2020. This would include the renewal of the Additional HMO Licensing scheme for the Castle and Uplands wards and introduce HMO licensing in the St Thomas Ward.

You can read the draft Policy and appendices in the Downloads section at the bottom of this page. A summary of changes from the current 2016 Policy is also included.

The public consultation is open until 19 February 2020 and we welcome your comments on it.

Please either e-mail your comments to or by writing to Pollution and Private Sector Housing Division, Directorate of Place, City and County of Swansea, Civic Centre, Oystermouth Road, Swansea, SA1 3SN.

The Policy will be reported to council in early 2020. Until that time the existing Policy, appendices and fees will apply. You can see those details here on our Licensing of Houses in Multiple Occupation page.

A summary of comments received will be included in the Report to Council. Individual respondents will not be identified by name.
