A woman has seen her bid to open a beauty salon rejected for a second time.

In December, Lisa Leech applied to Great Yarmouth Borough Council, on behalf of her daughter, Rhianne, to convert a garden room at Tally House, a large dwelling on Hall Road in Hopton.

The application - which had received no objections - was rejected over concerns about the location being "remote", distant to public transport and without pedestrian routes.

The proposed site is approximately 2.5 miles from the village centre.

A previous application, made in October last year, was refused on the same grounds.

In the wake of the second rejection, Rhianne, 21, said: "Owning a salon has been my passion and long term goal since I can remember.

"I want to create a tranquil salon for not only females but males who want to build their confidence in their appearance and boost their self esteem."

She said the location would "reach out to those who prefer a quieter setting and those who struggle with anxiety and worry when going into public locations for treatments".

Her mother said she would now appeal the refusal to the planning inspectorate.

According to the plans, the salon would be operated by one employee who would meet clients on a one-to-one basis, with only one client attending at any time.

It was expected no more than four to five clients would visit the site per day.

The plans also stated the salon would "contribute to the local rural economy with the use having no impact on the wider character of the locality".

Planners said the location was "unsustainable" for a beauty salon and the plans showed "a lack of clarity" regarding car parking demand, availability and management.
