PLANS to vary a former health and sweetness centre right into a 15-bedroom home in a number of occupancy (HMO) are set to come back below the highlight.
A change-of-use utility to transform a website on Ashton Road in Bardsley right into a HMO will likely be determined by Oldham Council’s planning committee on Wednesday night.
The proposals have attracted 212 objections with residents complaining about issues over “insufficient parking”, the “proliferation” of HMOs within the space. The potential improve in crime and injury to the character of the world are also worries cited in objections.
But in a report forward of the assembly, the council is recommending that the appliance ought to be accredited.
The native authority stated the residents are “unlikely to personal a non-public automobile” and the positioning is near “public transport choices”.
There isn’t any “definitive proof” of anti-social behaviour issues and no proof the variety of HMOs within the Medlock Vale ward are of “such magnitude” that it has “resulted in a fabric change on the character of the native space”, the council stated.
In conclusion, the council added: “The proposal would carry an under-utilised website again into lively use.”
At the identical assembly, a reserved issues utility for a part of a significant growth in Chadderton have been earmarked for approval.
The part, which is a part of a masterplan that features a employment-led blended use growth, incorporates a proposed linear park to the north of Foxdenton Lane. No objections have been made.
A council report states: “The proposed growth is appropriate. The growth will ship a big linear Park that will likely be usable, accessible and fashionable.”
Another utility which will likely be put below the microscope is a Grade II listed constructing on Tunstead Lane in Greenfield.
The plans, which have been supported by Saddleworth Parish Council, search to construct a two-storey rear extension. But Oldham Council is recommending the plans to be refused and says the deliberate alterations are “thought-about to trigger hurt to the character of the listed constructing by advantage of the 2 storey, which might obscure views of the historic a part of the constructing”.
