Previous proposals asking to increase the HMO – house in multiple accommodation – from six to 12 bedrooms were rejected by Rotherham Council in 2022 and January this year.

A new plan from applicants We Invest scaled this down to ten beds, which RMBC has accepted.

A council spokesperson said approval followed this reduction in rooms and “improvements to a number of the windows and outlooks within the existing development.”
