Change of use from dwelling (Use Class C3) to a 5 bedroom House in Multiple Occupation (HMO) (Use Class C4).
Our Response

BPT is supportive of proposed energy efficiency works to improve the EPC rating of the property, in response to the ongoing Climate Emergency.

The close, pedestrian proximity of family facilities such as Twerton Infant’s 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.
