Green travel information requirement dropped

An inspector has reworded a condition on a planning permission to convert three flats in Exeter to a house in multiple occupation (HMO), finding a requirement to issue residents with green travel packs unnecessary.

The condition prohibited occupation of the HMO until all residents had been issued with a pack informing them that they would not qualify for on-street parking permits and providing details of public transport services and walking and cycle routes. The appellant saw university students as the most likely occupants.

The inspector accepted that if all seven residents were to obtain residents' parking permits it would considerably increase parking pressure in the area. However, he thought it unlikely that residents would not familiarise themselves with services that could be accessed from the site and concluded that the requirement to supply a pack was unnecessary.
