Plans for a new dog grooming salon on the Shotley Peninsula have been submitted.

Proposals have been submitted to Babergh District Council to construct a dog grooming business on the site of a home in Stutton Lane in Tattingstone. 

Outbuildings at the cottage would be demolished to make way for the salon. 

Access to the business would remain unchanged, with an entrance currently located in Stutton Lane. 

Two parking spots will also be provided, planning documents stated.

A planning statement said: "This is considered adequate as there will only be one client served at any time with an additional space for any client that may turn up early for an appointment."

The applicant and home owner will be the only member of staff.

A report from an economic development officer at Babergh District Council said in support of the application: "A home dog grooming business caters to local pet owners, potentially filling a gap in local service provision. This can reduce the need for residents to travel further afield for similar services, keeping spending within the local economy."
