A new hair and beauty salon may shortly be opening in Penarth – where it’s said there are already about 20 established salons and hairdressers already in operation.
Work is currently underway on refitting the proposed new salon No 2 Royal Buildings Stanwell Road (next door to the exclusive cocktail bar and restaurant “Etc…”).
In 2006 the Vale of Glamorgan Council had received a planning application to convert the ground floor of the premises from a computer training establishment to a photographic studio. The council duly granted permission – but with the rider that the premises could only be used as a photographic studio and for “no other use.”
Now a new planning application has been submitted seeking to remove that restriction and allowing the shop to operate as a “Hair Salon” .
The application has been made by Mrs Leigharne Phillips who is Salon Director at The Hair Business of Cowbridge . It’s understood the new establishment will – subject to planning permission – be opened after Christmas.
