Policy PNP14 – Paignton Neighbourhood Plan Core Tourism Investment Area

To improve tourism opportunities in the seafront Core Tourism Investment Area shown (Fig. 6.8 page 46) further investment in tourist accommodation will be actively supported and:

a) Houses in Multiple Occupation known as HMO's will not be supported within the Core Tourism Investment Area in accordance with Policy PNP1(f);

b) Within the Core Tourism Investment Area there will be flexibility to allow change of use from holiday accommodation where it can be evidenced there is no reasonable prospect of continuing use for tourism purposes and the change proposed would support and not detract from the Area's function;

c) Applications for a change from tourism use should, where appropriate and necessary include information on proposals for the restoration of the building, to include the removal of any unsightly features considered to affect the character of the area. Evidence of neglect of properties will not be a reason supported for change of use of holiday accommodation that could otherwise be used for tourism purposes.
