However, six residents wrote to oppose the project, traffic jams, anti-social behavior, noise pollution, impact of the character of the area and invasion of privacy.
One resident wrote: “We share a party wall with the property so we are sensitive to increased noise. If ten unknown people stay in a house, people come and go, and if someone works as a team, people come and go at antisocial hours.
“The noise will be exacerbated by the guests these ten people might have. It will disturb us, especially our sleep patterns. It is an urgent concern.
“Another factor of concern is the congestion in the driveway of the property. Assuming each of the 10 residents has a car, there will be traffic around the turn onto Upton Court Road. This will create road safety problems because the turn in the road is at a sharp angle. ”
