2) that the undermentioned planning application Be Refused for the reasons outlined below:

 

(Item 4) Planning Application 2018/0954/FUL - Change of use from a 4 bed residential (Class C3) to a 5 bedroom HMO for 5 people (Class C4) at 30 St Albans Road, Brynmill, Swansea

 

A visual presentation was provided.

 

Councillor I E Mann (Local Member) addressed the Committee and spoke against the application.

 

Application refused contrary to Officer recommendation for the following reason:

The proposal, in combination with the existing high number and percentage of Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMOs) within St Albans Road (27 properties out of 46 amounting to 59%) will result in a harmful concentration and intensification of HMOs in the street and wider area (28 out of 46 properties amounting to 61%). This cumulative impact, both in terms of the number of occupiers within the road and the nature of the use for upto 6 occupants as a C4 use will result in damage to the character of the area and social cohesion with higher levels of transient residents and fewer long term households and established families. Such impact will lead in the long term to the wider community not being balanced and self-sustaining. As a result the proposal is contrary to Policy HC5 criterion (ii) of the City and County of Swansea Unitary Development Plan (2008) and the National Policy aims set out in Planning Policy Wales (Edition 9, November 2016) of creating sustainable and inclusive mixed communities.
