Change from guest house to bedsits secured

Exeter Planning has secured planning permission to convert a guest house in Weymouth to a House in Multiple Occupation (HMO).

There was opposition from local residents who seemed to harbour prejudices against the kind of people who live in HMOs fearing noise and anti-social behaviour.

The applicants own and manage a number of HMOs in Exeter largely for the student market. However as Weymouth does not have a large student population the residents of the HMO are likely to be people who find it difficult to afford to get onto the housing market, or who are working on short term contracts in the town.
