Family Homes Not HMOs

We the undersigned petition Brighton & Hove Council to prohibit the issuing of any future HMO certificates in the Bevendean/Moulsecoomb ward.

Over 800 'Houses In Multiple Occupation' (HMO) certificates have been currently issued in the Bevendean/Moulsecoomb ward, the ward includes Coombe road.
Families that have lived in this area all their lives are being out-priced of the housing market by HMO developers.
That's the loss of over 800 affordable family homes that have been converted into HMOs. With the vast majority being exclusively let to University Students.
We believe it is the biggest threat to our community and to the affordable family homes housing market in the City of Brighton. There are, at present over 800 family homes that have been lost to HMOs in the Bevendean & Moulsecoomb ward alone. With another 4 HMO proposals as I write.
Sign this Petition and join us in calling for a halt to this practice.

This ePetition ran from 19/09/2016 to 19/10/2016 and has now finished.

1295 people signed this ePetition.

Council response

The petition will be presented to the full Council meeting on the 20th October 2016.
