Retrospective Planning Consent Secured for Large HMO
Optimis is delighted to have successfully secured retrospective planning permission for the change of use of a dwelling to a Large HMO (Sui Generis) in the London Borough of Ealing. The property was already in use as a Large HMO, containing 8 bedrooms occupied by 10 tenants in accordance with a HMO Licence issued in 2017. Optimis demonstrated that this use was established, well managed and suitable for the area, enhancing local availability and choice in order to ensure a balanced mix of tenures to cater for a range of groups within the community. Following the Council’s consideration of the supporting justification, the LPA proceeded to consent the application.
