    Moving this dental practice onto a residential part of sunny bank road would be totally out of place. unsworth pole area is nicely compact with a medical centre,the dental practice and a selection of shops. not only would it look out of place to move the practice,it would most definitely affect nearby residents if they were looking to put their properties on the market,with a view to selling,by lowering the value,especially the next door property.I feel very strongly about this and hope this application is turned down.
