Plans submitted to turn Penarth post office into dental surgery
Plans to turn a local post office into a new dental surgery in Penarth have been submitted.
Wood Street’s post office will close on the 30th August and plans have already been sent in to change the use of the premises to a dental clinic. Marianne and John Guppy, managers of the post office for three decades, will retire at the end of August and no plans to open an alternative branch have yet been confirmed. Although people have been told that the post office closure will be temporary, no arrangements have been made for anyone to take over the running of the current premises and it is expected that an alternative base will be sought in the area.
The application to create a dental surgery relates to the ground floor of the building, which is located on the corner of Cornerswell Road and Wood Street. The first floor of the premises would continue to be used for residential purposes.
The submission mentions that there is ample parking available and adds that the dental surgery would not be “detrimental to the previously established uses.” The statement also suggested that a new dental facility would “serve to improve the standard of life and wellbeing of the local community as a whole.”Join this Discussion
