||(1) Reason for Refusal:
Paragraph 21 of Circular 05/2010 ‘Changes to Planning Regulations for Dwelling Houses and Houses in Multiple Occupation’ states that in the case of small residential care homes or nursing homes, staff and residents will probably not live as a single household and the use will therefore fall into the residential institutions class (Use Class C2), regardless of the size of the home. Given that the property would be occupied by children only, the use would require the employment of non-resident adults providing continuous care and supervision on a shift basis. Therefore, on balance, on the basis of the information received, it is considered that the residents would not be living together as a single household and that the type and level of activity which would be associated with the use would be materially different from that which would reasonably be expected at a residential dwelling. Accordingly, the use would not fall within Class C3b of the Town and Country Planning (Use Classes) Order 1987 (as amended).
