Planning House are very happy to have secured the change of use of a retail shop (Use Class A1) into a nail bar (Sui Generis) in Hexham.
The application was retrospective as the use had already been implemented within a Listed Building within Hexham.
The main town of Hexham has a wide variety of retail, shops, cafes, public houses and other related uses within its Primary Shopping Area. The proposed change of use has resulted in the loss of one retail unit within the Primary Shopping Area and Primary Shopping Frontage of Hexham. However, it was considered by Northumberland County Council that due to the existing wide variety of commercial businesses and taking into account that 36A Fore Street was previously a vacant premise, the application was supported by Officers and planning approval was granted.
We wish our clients every success on their new business venture!
