Plans approved for HMO on Fleet Lane, Parr

PLANS to convert a former bed and breakfast building into a 10 bedroom apartment building have been approved.

The plans, which Joy Construction submitted to St Helens Council last summer, involved changes of use at 466 Fleet Lane, Parr.

Proposals were accepted, although plans for six apartments on a nearby property at 460 Fleet Lane were shelved and separate plans for a takeaway and milkshake bar have since been drawn up.

A design and access statement prepared on behalf of the applicant by NMW Design in the original plans and validated last July states: “Joy Construction has identified a massive need for professional, quality and affordable residential communities in this area” and says so The location is “two miles from the very popular and extremely busy camp area adjacent to Burtonwood”.

It added: “This property is perfect for this community, particularly the 23-40 age group, and being only a 10 minute bike ride or a five minute bus ride away for commuting to work each day.” , it’s a great place.

“A high percentage of factory workers work for minimum wage and this property will provide a much more affordable place to live with all of the occupier’s bills wrapped up in its package, yet still give them the clean, quality space they need.”

The proposals include a “modest rear annexe on the first floor” and will offer 10 two-person bedrooms, with five on each floor.

In a report, planning officer Alex Ball said: “It is anticipated that the proposed HMO would have similar comings and goings as the previous bed and breakfast use (Class C1).

“It is not anticipated that the change of use would result in excessive noise levels. Hours of construction activity will be restricted by a constraint due to proximity to existing residential properties.”

Also originally envisaged was the conversion and extension of a former commercial building at 460 Fleet Lane into six two bedroom apartments.

In the report, the case officer noted: “During the application process, the applicant made significant changes to the proposed development by removing the nearby building (460 Fleet Lane) which consisted of conversion into six dwellings, concerns raised by the Council regarding the over-development of the site and the impact on neighboring and future occupants of the units.

New plans for 460 Fleet Lane were submitted in November to seek approval for a takeaway and milkshake bar, awaiting a permitting decision. Plans approved for HMO on Fleet Lane, Parr
