    There will be a drastic cut in the number of affordable homes being built in Gloucester if the Conservative Government presses ahead with changes to the planning system.

    The Government is proposing to scrap the duty of developers to build affordable housing on sites for up to 40 or 50 homes.

    It means that in Gloucester if the 50 homes threshold was adopted 111 fewer affordable homes built in the city over the next decade - a cut of 10% on current plans.

    Kingsholm Liberal Democrats have launched a new petition to stop the area being overwhelmed by Houses in Multiple Occupation.

    Family homes are being converted into properties suitable for renting and can lead to issues with noise, rubbish and parking.

    There can also be problems with getting landlords to deal with incidents of anti-social behaviour.

  • Petition: Oct 5, 2020

    Too many family homes in Kingsholm are being converted into Houses in Multiple Occupation, without planning permission being required. It is currently permitted development for six persons or less.

    I/We the undersigned demand that the city council starts work immediately on preparing evidence and documentation to apply to the Secretary of State to give Kingsholm the protection of an Article 4 Direction. This means that all conversions of family homes into Houses in Multiple Occupation would require planning permission.
