The owner of a used car dealership in Sudbury is looking to turn the site into a car wash.
Jules Simpson, who also runs a garage in Glemsford, is seeking permission from Babergh District Council for a change of use for Seekars in Great Eastern Road.
“We are hoping to turn it into a car wash but permission is taking a while,” said Mr Simpson.
In recent weeks, the car lot has been empty, although used cars have now returned for a short time.
“We will put cars back on sale in the interim,” added Mr Simpson.
