The city council turned down an application to convert a house of multiple occupation at 220 Dogsthorpe Road in Park ward.

In a report outlining its decision, planning officers stated: “The convoluted nature of the access and the increased level of parking provision would have an undue adverse impact on the residential amenity of occupiers of neighbouring dwellings.”

It added: “This would result in the generation of an unacceptable level of noise and disturbance from vehicular movement. Furthermore, the application has failed to demonstrate that a suitable and safe access can be provided.”

The proposal was to convert a six-bedroom property into a dental surgery with treatment rooms and a flat above.
