Change of use from (C3) dwellinghouse to (C4) small house in multiple occupation with a single-storey rear extension.
Our Response 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 Twerton Infants School and Southside Youth and Community Centre 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.
