From Brighton & Hove News –
Restrictions on new shared houses across Brighton and Hove have been given the go ahead by councillors.
Members of the Brighton and Hove City Council Tourism, Development and Culture Committee unanimously agreed to introduce an “Article 4” restriction on houses in multiple occupation (HMOs) across the entire city.
Six years ago, in January 2013, the first restrictions were brought in to prevent home owners from using “permitted development rights” to turn their properties into shared houses without planning permission.
The rule change currently affects five wards – Moulsecoomb and Bevendean, Hollingdean and Stanmer, Hanover and Elm Grove, Queen’s Park and St Peter’s and North Laine.
A neighbour has alerted us that two planning applications have been lodged relating to the development between The Open House and the railway line.
“I got a consultation letter through the door from the council the other day, it relates to the development between the Open House pub and the railway line.
The application is this one:
They also put this in just before:
I thought that was rejected by the council but it now seems they are both active.
They want to cut down the sycamore tree even though it is protected and they said in their plans they would keep it.
They justify this by saying the ground is so contaminated by cyanide, lead and PAHs that they need to lay down a membrane to protect future inhabitants from the contamination. Great place to build houses!
They say the tree makes doing that more difficult, though from reading the consultation doc it seems keeping it and working round is an option – just more expensive.”
