The aim of the SPD is to avoid high concentrations of HMOs in the interests of an appropriately balanced housing mix across the city. The Article 4 Direction withdraws the Permitted Development Right for the change of use from family homes (Use Class C3) to Houses in Multiple Occupation (Use Classes C4 and Sui Generis) across the City of Bath.
Bath & North East Somerset Council have installed new wayfinding columns to help local people and visitors find their way more easily around the city. These columns have been installed in Union Street and High Street on a trial basis, adjacent to the entrances to The Corridor and Northumberland Place.
The columns are designed to integrate with the existing wayfinding system providing an additional finer grained level of local area information to help visitors explore the city's passageways and side streets and support local independent traders.
This survey is to measure customer satisfaction for residents and visitors to Bath and North East Somerset’s Parks and Open Spaces.
