Change of use from 3 bed dwellinghouse (use class C3) to 6 bed house in multiple occupation (use class C4) incorporating the installation 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 facilities such as Roundhill Primary School and Little Blossoms Nursery School make 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 loss of suitable family accommodation. Approval of this application would maintain an undesirable precedent and should therefore be resisted.
