Change of use from C3 (Residential) 3/4 bedroom dwelling to C4 (HMO) six bedroom dwelling with loft conversion with dormer and associated landscaping and parking space.
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 Roundhill Primary School, Barrow Mead Community Tree Nursery, and Little Blossoms Nursery School make 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.
