HMO register from “Plymouth city council”

The request was successful.

Dear Plymouth City Council,

I searched on your website and couldn't find a copy of your up to date HMO Licence Register as prescribed under the Housing Act 2004 s.232 (1) and the information that is required to be maintained within the register is described in the The Licensing and Management of Houses in Multiple occupation and Other Houses (Miscellaneous Provisions) (England) Regulations 2006.

The latter is extracted here for convenience:

Registers of Licences

11.—(1) The following particulars are prescribed for each entry in a register established and maintained under section 232(1)(a) of the Actin respect of a licence granted under Part 2 (HMOs) or 3 (selective licensing) of the Act which is in force—

(a) HMO Property Address
(b) HMO Licence Holder(s) Full Name
(c) HMO Licence Holders Correspondence Address
(d) HMO Managers Name
(e) HMO Managers Address
(f) A short description of the licensed HMO or house;
(g) A summary of the conditions of the licence;
(h) Date of Licence Commencement
(I) Date of Licence Expiry
(j) Duration of Licence
(k) Licence Number
(l) Number of Households
(m) Maximum Number of Occupants
(n) Number of Units/Bedrooms
(o) Number of Self Contained Units
(p) Number of Non Self Contained Units
(q) Number of Storeys
(r) Number of Kitchens
(s) Number of Reception
(t) Number of Bathrooms
(u) Number of Separate WCs

A reply using Excel format would be very helpful.

Yours faithfully,


FOI People, Plymouth City Council
