BCP Council (Bournemouth area): Neil McKeon has recently secured planning permission for the change of use of an A2 unit on Wimborne Road to a tattoo studio (Sui Generis) and ancillary retail use.

The applicant instructed Pure Town Planning to prepare, submit and manage a change of use application which relocates the existing business to a former A2 use commercial unit in Moordown District Centre.

The tattoo studio includes a retail element to the business, where the applicant will also be displaying and selling artwork on site. As the shop front is retained, the character of the Wimborne Road – primarily retail shops and commercial units – will be unaffected. The Council were satisfied that the proposed mixed use unit will contribute positively to the vitality and viability of this secondary shopping area.

If you need assistance in relocating your business and require a change of use application, please contact Pure Town Planning on 01202 585524, or email info@puretownplanning.co.uk to discuss how we can help you.
