■ Note to readers: 2017-18 incidents

If you are viewing a listing of 2017-18 incidents, please bear in mind the comments I've made elsewhere: The students who were involved in these incidents have probably moved on, and are no longer at the properties mentioned. It follows that the current occupants are not to blame for what happened there previously, and should not be treated negatively.

I retain these incidents in the record because they are not completely "closed"—if there are further incidents at a property in a new academic year, with a different student household involved, then we have to question whether the property is being adequately managed, as required by the regulations applying to HMOs (Houses of Multiple Occupation). If that appears to be an issue, we can refer the case to the Private Housing team at Bristol City Council, which is responsible for administering the HMO regulations locally.
