9 Hardacre Street , Ormskirk

Following numerous complaints from local residents about this change of use ;

Planning Application 2017/0411/FUL. Conversion of residential property to a 4 bedroomed student HMO.

I wish to object to this planning application for the following reasons .

1. Policy RS3 of the Local Plan , Hardacre Street is well over the 5% Limit.

I draw your attention to numbers 8 and 10 Hardacre Street which were refused planning permission to change to student HMO ‘s in December 2015 . Planning application 2015/1070/COU . The reason sited for refusal of any further HMO’s on Hardacre Street was ‘ failed to comply with policy RS3 – would result in over 5% of dwellings on Hardacre Street and in a clustering of HMO dwellings to the detriment and character of the area and amenities of nearby residents ‘.

This application should also be refused on the same grounds as the above .

2. Further loss of amenities to local residents in the area . Hardacre Street is a cul de sac and students enter and leave by Station Road . There have been number of ‘ logs’ to the police of ASB on Hardacre Street , not only by residents on the street itself, but also Station Road , and Burscough Street ( the properties on Burscough Street back on the rear of properties on Hardacre) , where there have been late night parties and ASB. I am able to supply log numbers if you need them .

3. I attach a screenshot of number 9 Hardacre street already being advertised by NSW properties on their website .

Under policy RS3 alone , this application should be refused as were 8 and 10 Hardacre Street .
