Housing space standards policy

An Article 4 direction, which controls the change of use from a family dwelling to a house in multiple occupation (HMO) in certain wards, came into force in February 2013. The affected wards are Shear Brow, Corporation Park, Wensley Fold, Mill Hill, Ewood, Sudell and Sunnyhurst.

The Council has now adopted a housing space standards policy for new dwellings and housings in multiple occupation.
