PLANS are in the pipeline to convert a town centre property into a house of multiple occupation (HMO).

Wrexham Council has received the application for 33 Park Street, Rhosddu, seeking to house five separate bedrooms for eight people.

The property is currently a two storey, four bedroom mid-terrace house.

A design and access statement submitted with the application outlines the reasons the applicants have for seeking the conversion.

It states: "It is intended to use 33 Park Street as HMO accommodation for the residents of Wrexham choosing to live in shared accommodation for which there is significant demand and limited availability,

"The house is situated within easy walking distance of the university, hospital and the central bus station from which buses run to the industrial estates around Wrexham.

"The house will contain five separate bedrooms and an HMO licence will be applied for to allow up to eight people to live in the house at any one time.

"It is intended that three of the bedrooms could be utilised by couples."

Concerns about the inpact converting the property could have on the neighbours has also been addressed in the statement.

It states: "We are mindful of the fact that this is a mid-terraced house and that there are neighbours in close proximity on both sides.

"We have a set of house rules which clearly state that noise nuisance is unacceptable and that the playing of loud music or any other form of noise that can be heard by our neighbours will not be tolerated.

"All our neighbours have our mobile telephone numbers and they are encouraged to phone us at any time of the day or night if they are being disturbed."

Statistics submitted with the application show that as of March 2017, there were 285 licensed HMO's in Wrexham town centre out of 318 in Wrexham county overall.

Wrexham Council's planning committee will make a decision on the proposals at a later date.
