Change of use from a 3no. bedroom residential property (Use Class C3) to a 5no. bedroom HMO (Use Class C4).
Our Response The immediacy of Twerton Infants School makes 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 unacceptable loss of accommodation in terms of mix, size and type. We also question whether the use should be ‘sui generis’ given it is likely that 5 bedrooms will result in 6 or more residents.
