Labour Eastcott Councillor Welcomes rejection of HMO Applications

Eastcott Councillor, Paul Dixon, has welcomed Swindon Council’s rejection of two planning applications in Eastcott Ward, one in Belle Vue Road and another on Crombey Street.

A planning application had been submitted to convert 44 Belle Vue Road in to a 7 bed House of Multiple Occupation (HMO) with a rear extension to the property. This application had followed a previous application on this property for a 9 bed HMO, which was refused on planning grounds. And a planning application had also been submitted to convert 51 Crombey Street in to a 7 bed House of Multiple Occupation (HMO).

Both applications were rejected under delegated planning powers because of a lack of parking capacity and overdevelopment in the area.

Cllr Dixon has thanked residents who got in touch with him expressing their views on these applications.
