Change of use from a C3 (residential dwelling) to a C4 (3 bed HMO) (retrospective).
Our Response BPT does not object to the material changes proposed to this suburban property. However, we strongly emphasise that the close, pedestrian proximity of family facilities such as St Philip's Primary School, St Martin's Garden Primary School, and Threeways School 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.
