|Planning Granted For Shelter House In Elliott Road|
Vacant guest house to be turned into nine flats for young adults
Planning permission has been granted to turn a vacant property in Elliott Road into nine single occupancy units for homeless young adults.
The matter was decided at Hounslow Council Planning Committee meeting last night (8th March). There were some local objections to the proposal from residents.
A planning application had been submitted for a Change of use from Guest House (Class C1) to accommodation for up to nine young adults in housing need and caretaker accommodation (Sui Generis). The plan was submitted by Shelter, but this is not the same organisation as the national homeless charity Shelter.
The guest house has been vacant since 2016 and its owner has now died.
The application pertains to number 62 and 62A Elliott Road. The works involve retaining the facade to 62 Elliott Road, and reconstruction of the property with external works including part two storey side extension, rear dormer roof extension, raised ridge height from flat roof.
The also plan the demolition and reconstruction of 62A Elliott Road with external works including a hip-to-gable extension, single storey front extension, installation of screening to the existing roof terrace, installation of roof lights to both properties and replacement boundary treatments and associated cycle parking.
The use would comprise 9 single occupancy rooms with en suite facilities. The property would also include separate accommodation for the landlord that would provide an additional 4 bed spaces. The units will be rented from 1 month (minimum) up to 2 years (maximum).
