Kegworth HMO Article 4 Direction

Closed 15 Jun 2020

Opened 4 May 2020


The District Council has made the decision to make a non-immediate Article 4 Direction to the village of Kegworth, to withdraw permitted development rights for the change of use from dwelling houses (Use Class C3) to small HMO’s (Use Class C4) where between 3 and 6 unrelated people share basic amenities such as a kitchen or bathroom.  It is proposed that the new Article 4 Direction will apply to the entire village of Kegworth, as shown on the accompanying map.

Public Consultation

An initial 6-week period to publicise the Article 4 Direction and to seek comments on the proposal took place between Monday 17th February 2020 and Monday 30th March 2020.  Unfortunately due to an administrative error, it is necessary to undertake a further 6 week consultation period. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause but it is considered essential to the process of making the Article 4 Direction, that this matter is addressed at this stage.

The further 6 week period to publicise the Article 4 Direction and to seek comments on the proposal will take place between Monday 4th May 2020 and Monday 15th June 2020.

Any comments received will be presented to a future meeting of the District’s Council Cabinet, who will then decide whether to confirm the Article 4 Direction.

Please note that late response forms cannot be accepted.
