Plans for Sunderland self-service dog wash approved

Plans for a self-service dog wash on the seafront in Sunderland, Tyne and Wear, have been approved.

Sunderland City Council’s planning department has approved NE Dog Wash’s plans for land near the Marine Walk council car park in Roker.

NE Dog Wash, which already operates from locations in Blyth, Whitley Bay, and several country parks, provides dog wash stations with cycles including shampoo, rinse, conditioner, ‘further rinse’ and warm blow dry.

A council decision report noted the plans would “enhance the quality of tourism for the public to the area whilst only using a small area of open space”.

It was also noted that the unit could be removed “if no longer required” and “as such it is not considered that the loss of open space is significant in this instance and the benefit outweighs the small loss of the space”.

One planning condition includes the development being brought forward within three years.

Plans were recently approved for a dog wash station at the Harbour Drive South Car Park in South Shields.
