TWO-STOREY SEMI–DETACHED IN ASHFORD
TO BE TURNED INTO A HOMELESS SHELTER
Although the landlord appears to have altruistic motives, turning a semi-detached home in a residential street into homeless shelter is unacceptable!
Spelthorne’s Tory run planning committee have given planning permission for a two- storey semi-detached home in Edward Way to be converted into “temporary accommodation” for seven homeless people. The development will become a house of multiple occupancy (HMO), with seven en-suite bedrooms, a kitchen and a dining area.
The council have acted irresponsibly by setting a precedent of allowing a semi-detached house in a residential area to be turned into a hostel, this now makes it more possible for this to happen all over the borough.
Greedy landlords will be able to evict families, and convert more homes into HMOs, as is happening all over the country. Instead of easing the housing shortage it will make it worse.
The council should be dealing with this matter themselves, They could use the Oast House in Staines which has stood empty for eight years and could easily house thirty people.
The above picture shows what has been done in Mitcham.
The 36 unit Y:Cube development in Mitcham, South West London, is an innovative low cost housing initiative for single people in housing need.
The first UK Y:Cube development, located at the corner of Clay Avenue and Woodstock Way in Mitcham, is a 100% affordable housing scheme providing homes for 36 people in housing need from the local area.
All of the 36 flats are currently rented out, with half of the residents coming from YMCA London South West’s hostel accommodation, and the other 50% nominated from Merton Council.
All tenants will have to be meaningfully engaged in either employment, training, education and volunteering. The referral process will be rigorous to ensure all tenants can live independently and be a good neighbour.
The scheme consists of 36 self-contained one bed flats. Each identical flat contains a living space that includes a galley kitchen, separate bedroom and an en-suite toilet and shower. Each flat have a net space of 26sqm.
The rent is to be set at or around 65% of the market rent for one bed flat in Merton. All properties will be let on an assured short-hold periodic tenancies with the anticipated length of stay being 3 to 5 years.

Landlords carving up a home into micro-flats can squeeze out £50,000
