HMO - Over Provision Policy

Houses in Multiple Occupation Overprovision Policy. 

Following the meeting of the Environment and Housing Committee on 17th September 2015 approval was given for the adoption of the revised Supplementary Guidance SG05 and Houses in Multiple Occupation Overprovision Policy.

The effect of this new policy is to introduce a new concentration threshold of 1% within the Electoral Wards of Stirling North (Ward 4), Stirling East (Ward 6), Stirling West (Ward 5), Dunblane and Bridge of Allan (Ward 3). The concentration level outwith these areas will be limited to 5% for each Census Output Area, for any new first time HMO applications. This policy will apply irrespective of planning permission being required for “change of use”.

Important: Please read the HMO Overprovision Policy before submitting an HMO application for properties that do not have a current HMO licence - please note that Castle Ward is now known as Stirling North
