A new hair and beauty salon could open in Great Yarmouth if a planning application gets the thumbs-up.

The bid would see a vacant building, formerly used as a workshop and garage, on High Mill Road in Cobholm renovated and converted.

A document supporting the application states that property "has been neglected for a number of years".

The salon would employ one full-time and two part-time staff working at two hair-washing stations and three cutting and styling chairs. 

Opening hours would be from 9am to 6pm on Monday to Saturday.

The applicant has said there is a demand for a hair salon in the area, which is mainly residential, with "many... [having] closed over recent years".

According to Google Maps, only one such business, Beau Micheals on Mill Road, is currently trading in Cobholm.
