I am applying for planning permission to convert a 3-bedroom flat in Birmingham (classed as a C3 dwelling house) to a C4 small HMO. Birmingham has a city-wide Article 4 Directive in place which overrides permitted development rights.
The flat exceeds minimum room sizes considerably, and I am not proposing any changes to the internal layout. I would like to submit the planning application myself. I would be interested to know if anyone has successfully applied for Planning Permission in Birmingham or any other area with Article 4 in place to change the use of a property to C4.
I am keen to hear views on whether I should be considering preparing the application myself, or whether I need a specialist third party to do this for me. I have looked at the form and requirements on the Planning Portal, and it looks straightforward to me. I would also be interested in any advice to help me strengthen my application.
