Proposal

Change of use from a 3-bed residential property (Use Class C3) to a 3-bed house of multiple occupation (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 Roundhill Primary School (within one minute’s walking distance) makes 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.
