Comments: I write on behalf of Hoylake Community Planning Forum to confirm our consultation response to the Planning Application Ref No APP/17/00578
The application letter states that the submission is on behalf of the Hughes family who are looking to extend their family home with a ‘granny annex’ allowing their extended family to live with them. However this property is currently listed on AirBnB as available for short term rental of the whole house. See link below for property listing.
The March 2015 Deregulation Act, set rules to allow homeowners to let their property for up to 90 days a year.
Clearly if this whole property is being made available for short term let for more than 90 days a year it is no longer being used mainly as a private residence.
If the property is being used for a significant level of business activity this may effect the area and the owners of neighbouring property.
If this is the case then a change of use application should potentially be enforced as it can no longer be considered as solely a dwelling/home.
Only then could this property, should it be effectively operating as a guest house, be considered accordingly with regards to planning permission and any potentially adverse effects on the local area.
