Plans for new doggy daycare in Sunderland lodged

Plans for a new doggy daycare in Sunderland have been lodged with the local authority. 

The application for 97-99 Newcastle Road, which was previously a tool and equipment hire centre and is now partly operating as a café, comes from Family Vibes. 

Yappy Days Doggy Daycare, which would be based in a part of the building adjacent to Newcastle Road, would also provide a dog walking service. 

A design and access statement says: “We have been in contact with the property owners who have kindly agreed to securing the unused land to the rear of the unit to provide outside space for the comfort of the dogs.  

“There is a 6ft fence all around the garden and we will be erecting a 6ft lockable gate for security. 

“With the garden being at the back of the unit, it is 5m away from the public footpath.” 

The centre would open from 8am to 6pm on weekdays and would be closed at weekends and during bank holidays.  

In addition, the business would employ two full-time and two part-time workers.

A decision on the plans, which will be made after a period of council consultation, is expected by 7 December.
