Northampton Borough Council is considering the implementation of an enhanced designation area for Additional HMO Licensing.
The current scheme ends on Saturday 2 November this year and, if approved, the new additional 5 year scheme will come into effect the following day.
Under the new scheme, all HMOs in the enhanced designation, containing 3 or more occupants from at least 2 or more households, will need to be licensed, including self-contained flats.
The consultation runs for 10 weeks and ends on 14 July at 5.00pm. Anyone wishing to download the report and respond can do so via the online survey through
https://www.northampton.gov.uk/HMOLicensingconsultation or by dropping into the One-Stop Shop at the Guildhall to view a paper copy of the report and collect a paper survey form.
