Change of use from dwellinghouse (C3) to small house in multiple occupation (C4) with the erection of a single-storey rear extension, external wall insulation and replacement roof tiles.
Our Response

Works to upgrade the building’s energy efficiency and associated EPC rating, such as new double glazed windows and wall/roof insulation, are generally supported in response to the Climate Emergency.

BPT strongly emphasises that the close, pedestrian proximity of family facilities such as St Michael's Junior 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.
