Car wash refused longer hours

PLANS to extend the Sunday opening hours of a town car wash have been refused.

F S Hand Car Wash and Valeting, in Waldingfield Road, Sudbury, had hoped to increase its trading hours by three hours, from 9am to 6pm.

Babergh District Council’s development committee turned down the application, claiming the plans would “result in the lose of amenity” for residents living nearby.

Council officers had recommended that the plans be approved, subject to a number of conditions, ahead of the meeting on Wednesday.

Both Sudbury Town Council and Chilton Parish Council objected to the application, with the latter siting a lack of facilities on the site to limit noise pollution.
