Scarborough HMO Plans Approved

Scarborough HMO Plans Approved

Published by Local Democracy Reporter Carl Gavighan at 4:28pm 29th April 2020.

Two empty shops in Scarborough are to become a House of Multiple Occupancy (HMO) after getting the go-ahead from the borough council.

Craig Porteous, of West Park Property Developments, applied to the council for a change of use for the properties at 33-35 Dean Road earlier this year

The planning documents submitted to the council stated that a new use was needed for the buildings.

It said:

“The building as existing is vacant and has had a mix of uses from retail to a fast food outlet.

Historically, it is believed the property was built for residential purposes.

The building is a three-storey property requiring modernisation to meet the proposed change of use.”

The existing shop fronts to both units will be removed and openings between each unit will be blocked up. A small single-story extension will be required at ground floor to make the living space meet the required space requirements.

The shops were most recently home to Sweets and Treats Confectionery and Moozels Milkshake Bar.

Scarborough Council planning officers granted planning permission under delegated powers after no objections were received during the consultation process.

Two interconnecting three-storey terraced properties with double extensions at the back of each bought for just £92K at auction. Do a half-decent refurb and you are quids in with a HMO cash cow there Craig!!
