RE: NORTH NORTHAMPTONSHIRE COUNCIL HOUSES IN MULTIPLE OCCUPATION (HMOS) CONSULTATION SURVEY
North Northamptonshire Council has published an online consultation survey relating to Houses in Multiple Occupation, or ‘HMOs’ as they are commonly referred to.
The Council is gathering information to develop our understanding of the market and demand for HMOs in North Northamptonshire and the associated issues tenants, landlords and those living or working near HMOs experience.
The online consultation survey consisting of thirteen questions is available on the Council’s website at the Consultation Hub: https://northnorthants.citizenspace.com/property-services/houses-in-multiple-occupation. Completing the survey should take no more than around 5 to 10 minutes, depending on how much extra comment you would like to add.
The first part of the survey will provide evidence on demand and needs for HMOs and seeks views on the conditions of the HMOs.
The second part of the survey will help us to understand some of the most common complaints associated with HMOs and who they are being reported to and offers the opportunity for general comments.
The third part of the survey will help us to understand if there are any HMOs within your area that we are not already aware of, please see the Council’s interactive map: Houses In Multiple Occupation (arcgis.com) showing all licensed HMOs. Any new reported HMOs will be investigated and determined if they meet the HMO criteria and whether they are licensed or not. This will help to give us a fuller picture of the private sector housing market relating to HMOs.
Feedback from the survey and other evidence will inform our investigation and subsequent recommendations for policy and service changes to ensure the highest standards of licensing and strong governance of HMOs in North Northamptonshire.
It is vitally important that we capture the views of tenants, landlords and those living or working near HMOs so that our recommendations are shaped by real experiences, therefore we encourage you to respond before the deadline of Friday 9 September 2022 and request that you forward details of the survey to people that may be interested.
A509 ISHAM BYPASS
Consultation for the A509 Isham Bypass scheme will open on Friday 15 July and members of the community are invited to have their say and provide feedback to inform the current planning process.
The Isham Bypass scheme is for a proposed dual carriageway, commencing from the Symmetry Park roundabout, running in a southerly direction west of the village of Isham, and re-joining the A509 Kettering Road midway between Hill Top and Great Harrowden.
The Bypass will reduce congestion on the A509, improve transport links between Kettering and Wellingborough by helping to meet the needs of growth in the two towns, improve access from Wellingborough to the A14, and relieve some through traffic.
The A509 Isham Bypass scheme has been developed to address existing traffic issues through Isham and to accommodate the anticipated traffic growth in the coming years.
You can find more info about the scheme, attend online consultations and complete the questionnaire in the virtual consultation room via the below web link.
Several in-person consultation sessions are also being held at:
- Kettering markets - Friday 15 July from 9am to 4pm
- Isham Village Hall - Thursday 21 July from 10am to 7pm
- Wellingborough Town Centre - Saturday 20 August from 9am to 4pm
There will also be an online virtual room available for people to view the exhibition.
Online consultation sessions via Zoom are also scheduled for Wednesday 3 August and Wednesday 10 August from 6pm to 8pm.

Please visit the North Northamptonshire Consultation Hub for further information about how you can have your say.
This consultation closes midnight, Friday 26 August 2022.
