Plans are brewing to turn a former pub site into a seven-bedroom houses in multiple occupation (HMO).

The change-of-use application affects a site on Church Street East in Radcliffe, which served as the Papermakers Arms years ago.

The first floor houses a two-bedroom flat and the proposals state that the existing rear single storey outriggers would be demolished with a new full length rear extension built.

The ground floor of the site, which also used to be a pharmacy, will be converted into seven bedrooms if the application is approved.

All bedrooms will have their own en-suites and will share a large communal kitchen, dining and living room under the plans.

There is a large rear garden area and a cycle storage shed to house six bikes.

The application mentions that the property is close to public transport links with bus stops on Spring Lane and Church Street West and only being a two-minute walk from Radcliffe Tram Station.

An application statement says: "The existing ground floor shutters are to be removed, and all windows are to be replaced throughout, which will freshen up the external appearance of the old, tire looking building.

“We feel the conversion of the property's ground floor to a seven-bed HMO will not harm the look or feel of the building and will add more life to the building as a whole.”

One objection has been made against the plans so far.

It states: “I don't believe this use of property is suitable for this vicinity. It is possible a HMO of this type may encourage ASB due to shared facilities.

“I don't believe the location, adjacent to family properties is suitable.”
