Thank you for your replies. I've now found out that has to include planning permission for change of use from guest house, to HMO.. residential? Not sure why as will be holiday lets offering high quality accommodation to local workers coming to area for renewable sector, but longer term contracts.. planning are, apparently, anti HMO's although local delivery plan states, higher quality accommodation is required. So, I'm close to giving up! If you know of anyone who can advise on this would be grateful. Planning departments within Councils are a law unto themselves.
