From Brighton & Hove News –
A landlord has been ordered to stop renting out a shared house near Fiveways in Brighton.
Brighton and Hove City Council said: “The landlord of a property near Fiveways in Brighton is no longer allowed to let the property as a shared house.
“Last year Brighton and Hove City Council served a planning enforcement notice on the property, 9 Adams Close, Brighton, on the grounds that there are already many shared houses in the immediate area.
“The landlord continued to let out the house despite not having the necessary planning permission while appealing against the enforcement notice to the government’s planning inspectorate.
“Last month the landlord’s appeal was dismissed by the government’s planning inspectorate following consideration of the case.
“The result means it will be an offence for the owner to continue to use the property as a shared house for rent.
“The property was until recently still being advertised to future tenants. These advertisements have now been withdrawn.”
