Retrospective Change of Use from Bed and Breakfast (Class C1) to HMO (Class Sui Generis)

After receiving an enforcement notice, the client contacted Planning By Design regarding a retrospective change of use from a bed and breakfast (Class C1) to an HMO (Class Sui Generis). Following a planning appraisal with one of our chartered town planners, it was determined that the change of use is feasible and would require full planning permission. One of our chartered architects prepared the necessary architect drawings, which the client approved. Following the approved architectural design, one of our chartered town planners prepared the required design and access statement, to justify why the council should approve the application. As the site is located within a flood risk zone a flood risk assessment was also required to support the planning application. With the clients approval, the architect drawings, design and access statement and flood risk assessment were submitted with an application for full planning permission for the retrospective change of use. Planning permission has now been approved for a retrospective change of use from a bed and breakfast (Class C1) to an HMO (Class Sui Generis). This means the client can now resume and continue to use the property for the new use and will no longer be at risk of enforcement action.
