There would be a communal area for a living or dining room and kitchen and a laundry room was proposed.

On the first floor the existing accommodation would be refurbished and updated to provide six ensuite bedrooms and a tea kitchen.

The roof space would be converted to house two ensuite bedrooms.

A transport statement said there was sufficient parking in the local roads to accommodate any parking demands from the development.

Previous plans to enlarge the HMO were refused by Arun District Council.
