Plans have been lodged to turn a former family butchers in Lowestoft into a new dog grooming salon.

A “prior notification” scheme has been submitted to East Suffolk Council for “change of use from a butchers to a dog grooming salon” on Bevan Street East in Lowestoft.

The change of use plans, which are currently awaiting decision, centre around “a promising retail unit, situated in the heart of Lowestoft town centre,” that had been available to let.

With 5-6 Bevan Street East marketed by Steel & Co Commercial Property Services of Lowestoft, the property has “been let subject to contract (STC)”, according to its website.
