Planning permission will only be granted for Houses in Multiple Occupation, including student accommodation, where:

  1. (2) the proportion of dwelling units in multiple occupation (including the proposal) within a 100 metre radius of the application site does not exceed 10% of total dwelling units; and
  2. (1) the application site is within 400 metres walking distance of a bus stop; and
  3. (1) adequate provision is made for the storage of refuse containers whereby -
    • the containers are not visible from an area accessible by the general public, and
    • the containers can be moved to the collection point along an external route only

(1) Exceptions to a) may be made where the application site is located:

  1. on the campus of the University of Warwick or Warwickshire College or;
  2. on a main through fare in a mixed use area where the proposal would not lead to an increase in activity along nearby residential streets (for example, by way of pedestrian movements between the application site and the town centre or car parking)
