Can you post some content relating to HMO density within Marchmont?

A report from the HMO sub group is being prepared. The report is on the work of the HMO sub group and contains a summary of recent data issues, data on hmo concentrations and complaints. The data has been compiled for the HMO Short Life Working Group, a group formed by the Council to address HMO issues and gives numbers according to Wards - the most relevant for our Community Council being Meadows/Morningside ( which includes Marchmont) and Southside/Newington which have the highest concentration to HMOs.

The full report should be available after the next meeting. If you have a particular interest or concern you might find it useful to attend the meeting and make contact with members of the sub group.
