ANGRY councillors are considering risking a potential £5,000 government fine to send a message that some shared homes are not welcome in Portsmouth.

Councillors from all parties rallied together following the news that their appeal too block an 'unbelievable' seven-bedroom house in multiple occupancy (HMO) had been refused by a government inspector.

At a planning committee meeting this week the application for a shared home in Wisborough Road came back for approval. The Southsea House is already used a six-bed HMO and owners were seeking permission for an extra room.

  • At least they are asking, I wonder how many houses, private/council/Ha have been converted to ( 3 bed semi = 5 /6 familes ) without there knowledge, because the rent is paid on time. ???? Very common in London, safe bet its becoming common in this area.
