Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMOs) and Purpose Built Student Accommodation (PBSA)

Consultation on Draft Supplementary Planning Guidance - Houses in Multiple Occupation and Purpose Built Student Accommodation

The Council would like your views on the Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMOs) and Purpose Built Student Accommodation (PBSA) Draft Supplementary Planning Guidance (SPG) document. 

The SPG document provides information to support the relevant planning policies contained in the Swansea Local Development Plan (LDP).  Its purpose is to provide guidance as to how the relevant policies of the LDP should be applied in order to assist the determination of planning applications for HMO and PBSA developments.  

Please note that we are not seeking your views on the content of the LDP planning policies.  The LDP was formally adopted by the Council in February 2019, following extensive public consultation and a statutory Public Examination adjudicated by Welsh Government Inspectors.  

The Council would like your specific views on whether the draft SPG document provides sufficient explanation and clarity on what the relevant LDP policies mean and how they should be applied.

The survey will run until 5pm Friday 8th November 2019.

Please read the SPG document then answer the online questionnaire at the following link:
