We Love Our Client Feedback!

Case Study 01: Planning Appraisal for Change of Use From Single Dwellinghouse C3 to HMO C4 in Conservation Area

The client instructed Homz to provide feasibility on their property for a Change of Use from C3 (Dwellinghouse) to C4 (HMO) in London Borough of Brent. Our Senior Town Planner has conducted research within the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) to understand whether the local planning authority is applying any constraints on your property.

Changes of use from single dwellings to HMOs up to 6 beds, can often be conducted under Permitted Development however throughout Brent, the planning department has implemented Article 4 directions which means that any proposed change of use from a dwelling to an HMO requires planning consent.

While planning approval will be required, we do not believe that the site location should benefit from a reasonable – strong likelihood of success in terms of securing the necessary planning consent.

As per the council’s public planning database, the surrounding area has a positive planning history regarding planning applications related to extension and alteration works including loft conversions. This should facilitate a strong precedent for development, further promoting the feasibility and overall likelihood of success. This includes applications for HMOs in the area which have also secured planning approval. 

After the planning appraisal, our Architects and Town Planners prepared the supporting documents Architectural Plans, and Planning Statements. Please see the plans of this project in our Portfolio. Our team has successfully submitted and managed the planning application with the council. Following the waiting period of the decision, Homz has scored another successful Approval for this planning application on behalf of our client.

Likelihood of Success: Provided that an appropriate application is lodged, this proposal should benefit from a reasonable – strong likelihood of success provided that an appropriate application is lodged to the Planning Authority.
