Plans to turn a former shop at the top of Uckfield High Street into offices for an animal welfare charity cleared their first planning hurdle last night (December 18).
Members of Uckfield Town Council plans committee agreed to support an application to change the use of the former Hobby Box to offices.
Cllr Chris Macve, Trust Independent, Uckfield North, said it was always sad to lose a shop but the premises were, he said, “in the wrong position in the town”.
Cllr Duncan Bennett, Trust Independent, New Town, at one time ran a music business from the premises.
He pointed out the premises prior to that were offices, so the application was just returning the property to its former use.
