Erection of a two storey rear extension and single storey side extension. Change of use from 3 bedroom residential dwelling (Use Class C3) to a 6 bedroom House in Multiple Occupation (HMO) (Use Class C4).
BPT strongly emphasises that the close, pedestrian proximity of family facilities such as Innox Park, St. Michael's Junior Church School, and Twerton High Street 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.
