Change of use from dwellinghouse (C3) to small house in multiple occupation (C4) incorporating a single-storey rear extension to replace a lean-to conservatory and provision of secure cycle storage.
Our Response BPT does not object to the material changes proposed to this suburban property. However, we would like to strongly emphasise that the close, pedestrian proximity of family facilities such as Twerton Infants School & Nursery and Bath City Farm 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.
