Waltham Forest have made changes to their renewed licence scheme that comes into effect on 1st May such that additional licensing will apply to smaller houses in multiple occupation (HMOs) that are not covered by the mandatory HMO or selective licence schemes. We have many such properties that have 3-4 unrelated renters. However, planning permission will now need to be granted first before the license is issued and there is no link between the issuing of planning permission and obtaining a licence.
Apart from the issue of an Article 4 direction which means that most applications to change from a dwelling house (C3) to a HMO (C4) will be rejected, I have found it impossible just to find out from Waltham Forest Planning, in simple terms, how to apply for planning permission to change from C3 to C4. All the documentation they have sent on planning applications is largely incomprehensible and relates more to extensions, loft conversions and substantial building works. Every attempt to try and speak to someone in Planning is frustrated by all lines being busy up to 12:00 and then from 13:00 the phones aren’t answered as everyone is out on inspections.
How do I find out what needs to be done to make a simple planning application? And if the application is rejected, how we can find single families able to pay £1750 – £1900 for a 3-bedroom house in Walthamstow
