We have reported a number of potholes in Bloomfield Drive to the Council, including the potholes at the Junction of Bloomfield Drive and Corston View which is causing a big bang every time a bus goes ove.

Houses in Multiple Occupancy's in Clark's Estate

The council has changed the planning rules via an article 4 direction that has meant all houses in multiple occupancy (HMO's) need planning permission in Bath.

This was done to ensure that areas had mixed tenure, that not all house were HMO's

There have now been three planning applications for conversion in HMO's on the Clark's estate, residents have been asking us what is going on.

 There is a map in the council HMO Supplementary Planning document (SPD) map available here: www.bathnes.gov.uk/hmo<http://www.bathnes.gov.uk/hmo> - these properties are not within a 25% HMO area so the council would be minded to approve the application dependent on other planning considerations.

This area has fewer than 10% HMOs so it is well below the 25% threshold. Various maps can be seen in the Stakeholder Workshop report Appendices: http://democracy.bathnes.gov.uk/documents/s22729/Appx%20C%20Workshop.pdf

The council will be updating its data on 1st Dec and then every 6 months after that so it will be possible to monitor the situation.
