Change of use from residential dwelling house (C3) to small house in multiple occupation (C4).
Our Response

BPT does not object to any associated material changes proposed to this suburban property. However, we would like to strongly emphasise that the close, pedestrian proximity of family facilities including St Mary's Catholic Primary School, Caterpillar's Day Nursery, Weston All Saints Church of England Primary School, and position directly opposite the Weston Recreation Ground 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.
