Plan of apartments for HMO property in Holgate
PLANS have been submitted to convert a three-storey semi-detached building in York from an HMO (multiple occupancy house) into five self-contained apartments.
The planning application to York City Council is from Chris Dixon and is for 121 Carr Lane, Holgate.
If approved, three one-bed and two two-bed apartments would be created in what is currently a multi-occupancy house with ten bedrooms, a shared kitchen, two shower rooms and a separate toilet.
The planning application states that in terms of access, the front door of the existing accommodation would be used as the main entrance to one of the ground floor apartments as well as the upper floor apartments. The existing side entrances would be used for the other two ground floor apartments.
He also said: ‘Externally a new rear skylight is shown on the application drawings but this would be built as part of an authorized development and is not part of this application. No other external changes are proposed.
There would also be minor changes to the interior to allow for self-contained apartments and the proposal would not detract from the character of the area.
Its inhabitants, who would be no louder than a large family, would not harm the residential amenities of the neighborhood either.
The site offered parking but was close to public transport and would therefore “represent a form of sustainable development”, the app added.
