It’s a strange coincidence. The application to convert some derelict mushroom shed toilets to a beauty studio comes to a meeting next week. And on the same night the committee will consider turning some mushroom sheds in Folly Lane , Hockley into 4 light industrial units, each of 280 square metres (3000 square feet)
Local residents appear to be very much against this – there have been 49 responses received, which comment on such issues as pollution, increase in traffic, noise, and the principle of it being an industrial estate.
However, officers are recommending that the decision be left open for them to approve once the period of public consultations is over.
