 Change of use of dwelling house (Use Class C3) to a House of Multiple Occupation (Use Class C4). Provision of bin and cycle store and 2No. car parking spaces.

This application has been made, presumably hastily, without sufficient attention to practicality. All the officially required facilities for HMOs have been included, but they

simply do not work due to lack of space on the site. Two cars are depicted in front of the house on the plans, but there is not enough room for them to be parked and for residents to get into and out of the house, which has implications regarding access and fire regulations. The bike and wheelie bin locations mean that they will have to be brought through the house (if the door can be opened and neither of the cars are parked).

We object to this turning of a small family house into an HMO, given the available space.
