Plans have been submitted for a new grooming salon near Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk.
The planning application seeks to turn an outbuilding into a grooming salon at a Grade II listed cottage in Bury Road, Cockfield. The site is currently used as a residential home and garden.
The plans would see a new two-bay cart lodge – a timber framed structure that provides shelter and utility space in a traditional fashion – built. The grooming salon would be housed on the ground floor, with guest accommodation above.
An existing garage would also be turned into a home office, if the plans are approved.
In addition, a new driveway would be added, creating an extra six car parking spaces and two bike spaces.
The business would have two part-time employees – self-employed dog groomers – seeing around five dogs a day. The salon would be open every Thursday and Friday from 9.30am to 2pm.
The applicant Mr A Bull has already had plans for another building to be built as a stable block and tack room approved.
A decision is expected from Babergh District Council.
