Concerns have been raised over ‘anti-social behaviour’ and ‘noise’ after it was revealed a former Arnold care home could now be turned into a 30-bedroomed HMO.

Proposals to change the use of Ernehale Lodge Nursing Home, Furlong Street, Arnold to a 30-bedroom house in multiple occupation have been submitted to Gedling Borough Council.

The application has been submitted by Peter Johnson Associates of Nottingham acting as agents on behalf of Arnold Point Limited.

The design and access statement completed by Peter Johnson Associates submitted to accompany a full planning application advises that Ernehale Lodge is a purpose built care home facility registered with CQC for 30 residents with nursing care requirements. They are  housed in 10 single bedrooms and 10 twin rooms.

Planning documents advise that there is existing on-site car parking to the rear of the building (8 no. spaces) however there are no plans for additional parking at the property.

The design and access statement suggests that the future users are not expected to be car owners or users and thus secure cycle storage is provided with the proximity to the town centre and bus routes offering increased options for travel.

The planning application proposes 15 cycle spaces would be created.

Planning documents also state that pre-application advice has been sought from Gedling Borough Council for a change of use from care home (Class C2) to 30 bedroom house in multiple occupation (Sui Generis).

The conclusions of the pre-application advice are stated in the planning documentation as being ‘generally positive’ and that concerns relating to waste, noise and anti-social behaviour will be addressed by firm management of the project.’

Planning documents also advise that changes to the existing building are limited principally to internal re-arrangements.

External changes include the removal of the canopy and blocking up of the access at the existing entrance and a door is proposed to be inserted to the South elevation to provide a new entrance to the development.
