There is growing concern at the increasing number of Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMOs) and the concentration of such accommodation in certain parts of Coleraine Borough Council area.
Local community groups and the media have highlighted the impact that such accommodation and associated issues are having on these areas. This includes a detrimental impact on residential amenity, a lack of community integration, late night street noise and a higher incidence of crime.


A Subject Plan that specifically addresses the issues of HMOs within Coleraine Borough is considered the best method of developing and implementing planning policies for the Borough, particularly for those areas where HMOs are concentrated. The aim of this Issues Paper is to promote debate on issues that are likely to influence the preparation and development of the HMO Subject Plan.
