Multiple occupancy houses, such as shared student houses, were highlighted as a major issue in Hollingdean in the recent community survey conducted by Hollingdean Development Trust.

New plans have been unveiled by Brighton & Hove City Council to licence HMOs in targeted areas, including properties housing multiple students, to improve both the accommodation and neighbourhood relations.

The council wants to hear from residents, students and others over a 10-week consultation on additional licensing of HMOs of two or more storeys and three or more occupiers in wards including Hollingdean & Stanmer.

The survey is online at the council’s consultation portal at until 31st March, to give you a chance to have your say.
