‘Small’ family home could become seven-bed house of multiple occupation
Refused plans to turn a small family home in Norwich into a large eight-bed property have been resubmitted - this time for seven rooms.
John Robson is once again seeking permission to extend the three-bed property at Crummock Road, this time to create an additional four bedrooms.
The changes, which include a two-storey rear and single-storey side extension, will see the property turned into a house of multiple occupation (HMO).
His previous application submitted to Norwich City Council was refused last year due to a possible increase in noise and activity.
The council said the creation of a “large house of multiple occupation would lead to a harmful intensification of the use of a small family dwelling.”
Mr Robson’s latest plans seek to address the council’s concerns. He said by reducing the size to seven rooms there will a reduction in noise and activity.
The only communal space in the house will be the kitchen.
