This site exists to provide a portal for the neighbouring residents to inform themselves as to what is afoot within our community and to unify the opposition to the proposal as the yellow notices for this applicaiton only went up 2 weeks into the 5 week consutation period thus robbing local residents 40% of the normal time allowed to comment.

Details about the application above can be found at


With the proliferation of HMO's (Houses of multiple occupancy) within the area comes the risk of:

Extreme likelihood of anti-social behaviour, noise, litter and disturbance from the use.

Extreme likelihood of public drinking with its public health & social implications.

Extreme likelihood of sex workers visiting or operating from the dwelling.

Extreme likelihood of drug use with its public health & social implications.

Extreme likelihood of drug dealing with its public health & social implications.

Extreme likelihood of multiple police attendances.
