Councillor in Newham Investigated over Property

By |Published On: 21st May 2015|

This article is an external press release originally published on the Landlord News website, which has now been migrated to the Just Landlords blog.

Councillor Ahmed Noor, representing the Plaistow South ward, has been handed an enforcement notice relating to 238 Romford Road.

Noor owns the home and converted it from a commercial property to a House in Multiple Occupation (HMO) without planning permission.

The enforcement notice was served in April, stating that the house was converted in the last ten years, providing “a poor quality of accommodation which is to the detriment of the persons who reside there.”1

A spokesperson for Newham Council says that the case is being investigated: “Following a visit to a commercial property, planning enforcement officers reported the property to London Fire Brigade and issued a planning enforcement notice.”1 

Noor owns a total of five properties in the London borough.

A Newham Labour Party spokesperson comments: “Ahmed Noor has been placed on suspension from the Labour Party group of councillors without prejudice, pending a full investigation by the Labour group whip.”1
