PLANS to create a new beauty salon in a Worsbrough back garden have been rejected by Barnsley Council.

An application was submitted in October for the salon to be created on Mount Vernon Place.

However, Barnsley Council rejected the plans earlier this week.

A report said: “It is proposed to operate a beauty treatment business from a residential property located on Mount Vernon Place which forms part of a new housing development, construction of which is still ongoing.

“The applicant suggests that two parking spaces will always be available for clients because there will be no vehicles parked on the driveway during the day, however, no further details are provided in this regard in terms of where the applicants own vehicle or any other vehicles associated with the residential use of the property would be parked during the day.

“At the time of the highway officers site visit (a weekday mid-afternoon) it was observed that one vehicle was parked on the driveway.

“The council has received several complaints from a neighbouring resident regarding the parking of vehicles outside their property which are visiting the proposed business.

“At the time of the planning officers site visit, it was noted that there were vehicles parked on the highway outside the complainant’s property however there was no way to indicate whether they could be attributed to the use subject to this application.”
