Change of use from C3 (Residential) to C4 (houses in multiple occupation). Erection of two roof dormers and associated internal loft space.
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 Mark’s CoE School and St Saviour’s CoE VC Infant School make this an attractive 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.
