53 Upper Bloomfield Road, Odd Down

Change of use from dwelling house (use class C3) to 4 bed HMO (use class C4).
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 St Martin's Garden Primary School, the Three Ways School, and the Bath Studio 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.
