Dental group submits plans to turn Kent nightclub into new dental surgeries
Premises formerly used as a nightclub could soon be used as a brand new suite of dental surgeries if plans to turn Layzells on the Isle of Sheppey into a practice are approved.
Layzells, which opened on the site occupied by Warner Holiday Camp, has long been a favourite for local party-goers and holidaymakers but the owners are looking to scale back after running the business for over 20 years.
Plans to convert part of the building into dental surgeries will allow for Trevor and Gaynor Layzell to keep a function room open.
The business will still host parties, weddings and gatherings, with the sound of disco classics drowning out the whirring of the dental drill.
Trevor and Gaynor have run the venue for 22 years and they are looking forward to taking a break without shutting the venue completely.
Plans have not yet been confirmed but the duo will be going ahead with bookings for the summer, including a club night featuring DJ Ironik on the 31st July and a grand reopening weekend, which will take place on July 23rd and 24th to mark the end of restrictions for nightclubs.
Plans submitted to Swale council in May outline proposals to convert the remaining space at the venue into eight surgeries with off-road parking.
Mr Layzell said that the proposition to buy the premises had come as a shock. The owner of the dental group is looking for space to open new NHS surgeries with easy access to parking.
