Hailsham tanning studio plans

A FORMER BABY clothes shop could become a tanning studio, if permission is given by the planning authority.

Andrew Lee of Arlington Road in Hailsham wants to change the use of the former baby clothes shop known as ‘Bubbucub’ into a tanning studio in St Mary’s Walk.

A design statement said: “Within the premises there are to be several areas partioned off for privacy, one with a standard electric sunbed, one with a spray tan unit, and another with a standing sunbed.”

The shop would be open 10am to 7pm, Monday to Friday and 10am to 4pm on Saturdays.

Smell, litter or noise would have no detrimental effects on nearby residents, according to the applicant.

A Wealden District Council consultation ends this Tuesday, May 24.
