Town council objects to plans to run grooming business from shed

A town council has objected to plans to turn a shed into a dog grooming business in Liskeard, Cornwall.

Lynda Murphy, owner of Wags Dog Grooming, had lodged a planning application with Cornwall Council to be allowed to operate a dog grooming business from her shed, at Ash Park Terrace, Station Road.

Murphy said in her planning statement that she would start with grooming a maximum of three dogs, working by herself. She would also be collecting and returning the dogs to their owners.

However, Liskeard Town Council said it had concerns about the access onto Station Road, possible obstruction to access for the emergency services, and impact on neighbour amenity.

Comments made on the public portal also voiced similar concerns, as the nine properties on Ash Park Terrace, which have access via a narrow lane, are able to turn around and avoid reversing into Station Road via a turning point. Some residents were worried in their comments that visiting clients could potentially obstruct access to it.
