Bath and North East Somerset Council is consulting on a proposal to introduce an Additional (HMO) licensing scheme in the Bath City area. 

The consultation runs from 16th March 2018 until 25th May 2018.

Why are we consulting?

The proposal is to introduce:

An Additional (HMO)Licensing Scheme for Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMO) within the Bath City area.

This covers all wards that fall under Bath City. A mandatory (HMO) licensing scheme already exists which covers HMO properties where 5 or more people, from 2 or more households, living in a property with 3 or more storeys, where they share an amenity, such as a kitchen, living room or bathroom. Additional (HMO) licensing would extend the scheme to licence properties where 3 or more people, from 2 or more households live in a property (of any size), with a shared amenity.
