Reduce HMO Thresholds

We the undersigned petition the council to reduce the HMO acceptability thresholds permitting the conversion of further HMOs.

We the undersigned call upon City of York Council to implement the Council motion of the 16th December 2021 submitted by Councillor Warters that was resolved to;

Request Executive to initiate without delay a review of the HMO Supplementary Planning Document with a view to halving the acceptable percentage thresholds of HMOs across the Article 4 Direction Area.

To date there has been no implementation of that reduction in the HMO thresholds leading to continued loss of residential family homes in Osbaldwick and Murton and the increased studentification of the area with clear detrimental effects to the quality of life in the area for council tax paying residents.

Halving the HMO thresholds without delay is a matter of great urgency to prevent further erosion of community, quality of life and highway safety in Osbaldwick and Murton.

This ePetition ran from 26/02/2024 to 20/03/2024 and has now finished.
