97 Sheridan Road
If you have concerns about any planning application, then
please let us know as without your input we are powerless to be able to help.
We are pleased to be able to inform residents that the controversial planning application to convert 97 Sheridan Road into an HMO has been turned down by Bath & North East Somerset Council's Development Control Committee on 29th August.
Twerton Councillor Tim Ball who addressed the meeting had referred the item to the committee after receiving numerous comments from residents concerning the scale of the application.
The application was rejected on the grounds of the amount of parking problems that it would cause and on road safety issues and also causing residential harm to the area. Members of the committee expressed concern that this property formerly a 3 bedroomed family home was to become a six bed HMO.
99 Sheridan Road
This application was for a four bedroomed HMO although we laid the same concerns as 97 Sheridan Road, members of the Development Control Committee approved the application as they thought that the scale of the development was less of a problem.
We have also asked for an urgent policy review on how the number of current HMO units are counted by the planning department.
