Change of use of first floor office (Use Class E(g)(i)) to a Business College (Use Class F1(a)).

This application provides no information on the purpose of the change of use, i.e. whether an existing ‘business’ college is expanding, or simply wishes to move to better premises, or if a completely new college is being set up. This issue has social ramifications as well as in terms of student accommodation; the application should not be approved until these are understood and satisfactorily resolved.
