Change of use from dwellinghouse (Use Class C3) to a small house of multiple occupation (HMO) (Use Class C4) including a single storey rear extension and provision of secure cycle storage.
BPT does not object to the material changes proposed to this suburban property. However, we would like to strongly emphasise that the close, pedestrian proximity of family facilities such as St Philip’s Primary School and the Odd Down Sports Ground make this an attractive, convenient, and appropriate property for families. A change of use to a HMO would not serve the local demand for housing in this area and would result in the loss of suitable family accommodation. Approval of this application would maintain an undesirable precedent and should therefore be resisted.
