Change of use from dwellinghouse (use class C3) to house in multiple occupation (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 facilities such as Oldfield Park Junior School and the Moorlands Schools Federation 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.
