Grand plans for former Post Office and pet salon business extension in Grimsby – at planning this week — Grimsby Live

0 Comments

A pet grooming salon in Grimsby has made an application to secure its future and grand plans for a former Post Office were among the latest planning applications made to North East Lincolnshire Council .

The pet salon, Groomed 2 Pawfection, has been based in an outbuilding at 2 Roundway, Grimsby, after getting a time-limited licence to operate there in January. The conditional permission also restricted opening times to between 9am plus 6pm on Monday to Fridays and between 10am and 4pm on Saturdays.

The latest application does not seek to vary the opening hour conditions, but for the pet grooming business to be able to continue to run at the outbuilding. Demand for pet salon services appears to be on the rise, salons operated by Pets at Home in the UK have almost tripled in nine years, from 87 shops in 2013 to 337 in 2022.

More than a dozen applications were registered with the council in the week of October 24, ranging from the felling of a crab apple tree, to alterations of private homes and changes of building use.

Planning applications are only usually referred to the council’s planning committee if the proposed work is significant in scale, or if numerous objections have been received in relation to it. Some applications are either accepted or rejected simply on their merit simply by planning officers, without needing committee consideration.

Below are some of the planning applications to be validated across the local authority area in the last week:

Pet grooming salon



The pet salon was given twelve month temporary permission back in January to be based in Roundway, Grimsby.

The pet salon was given twelve month temporary permission back in January to be based in Roundway, Grimsby.

Grooming 2 Pawfection was only granted a 12 month licence inside January to operate at an outbuilding in Grimsby . Owner Jade Brown says in her application for the removal of this time limit: “The condition only allowed me to run my tidying salon for 12 months, therefore I would now like to continue to use my outbuilding for my dog grooming business. ”

Environmental protection requested the temporary permission first time around, concerned about noise and disturbance harming residential amenity. A neighbour also objected at the time, on a number of grounds, including traffic worries.

But the 12 month permission was granted after a planning officer’s report said: “The proposed pet grooming salon would have minimal impact to the character of the area and neighbouring amenities and would not cause impacts on the traffic in the area. ”

Gas workshop plans

The Walton-on-Thames-based gas supplier has submitted plans to set up a workshop on its existing site in Laporte Road, Stallingborough. If approved, Air Products Plc will build a modular building to be used as a workshop, associated works and ancillary infrastructure.

Aluminium panels and sheets would line the roof and walls of the 53 sq metre proposed building, with its construction based on the steel frame on top of a new concrete base. “It is a minor form of development, inch say Terence O’Rourke in the design and access statement for the workshop, to be used for wider site maintenance.

The brand has a long history in Stallingborough. The erection by the company of a cryogenics oxygen production plant at the site was approved in 1998.

A Question of Signage

Planning applications often are not about building new homes or facilities. For example , the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) Freshney Green primary care centre in Sorrel Road, Grimsby, has applied to install two new company signs on a side wall and fencing.

The two 0. 95 x 0. 55mm white perspex signs would not be illuminated and will simply have the NSPCC logo and office name. The centre itself opened in 2009 and hosts GP practices, children’s services, including a breastfeeding support group, and the NSPCC. It serves approximately a fifth of the North East Lincolnshire population.

Finally, the Old Post Office in Station Road, Great Coates, could have a significant makeover. Proposals have been made which include removing an existing carport, the erection of a single storey integral garage and to convert 2 current garage spaces into a gym and guest bedroom.

Inside appears largely to involve a rejigging of space, with the gym room the only new element not present before. French windows will replace one of the current garage doors, and a couple of cherry blossom trees are planned to make up for previous tree removal. The plans are open to consultation until mid-November.
