Planning officers have given their approval to the conversion of a residential home at 103 Bishop’s Road, Peterborough into a HMO for ten people.

The original application sought permission for a maximum of 14 residents with four shower rooms, four kitchens, three cookers and four toilets but officers placed a condition on their approval of the conversion that it would host no more than ten people.

No objections were received to the proposals during the public consultation period.
