Change of use from a 3-bed dwelling (Use Class C3) to a 4-bed House of Multiple Occupation (HMO) (Use Class C4).
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 Mulberry Park Educate Together Primary School makes 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.
