Use of property as HMO (Use class C4) (Certificate of Lawfulness for an Existing Use).
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 Oldfield Park Infants’ 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.
