Change of use sought for Uckfield’s ‘smallest’ shop

A former doors and windows shop in Olives Yard, Uckfield, could be used as a complimentary therapy clinic.

A planning application to change the use of the building, previously occupied by Crystal Vision, says two “highly qualified and experienced therapists” would work on an appointment-only system generally between 9am and 5pm on weekdays.

Uckfield’s ‘smallest shop’ which could be used as a complementary therapy clinic.

A statement with the application says: “The client base is already established. We anticipate a maximum of six clients per day with no additional traffic generation as existing clients already make use of the local free parking in Uckfield.

“The intention is to provide a small reception/welcome area at the front of the building and a single therapy space behind. The area will be separated by free-standing screens for client privacy.


“All supplies will be brought in by the therapists on a daily basis and all waste will be removed at the end of the day.”

The property, which is being marketed by Lawson Commercial, is described as “possibly Uckfield’s smallest retail building, a delightful character detached lockup shop to let”.


It includes an overall 1972 sq ft (17.8 sq m) of space with a small cloakroom, in a courtyard setting and with a car space.

The cost of a new lease is advertised as £6,000 a year.
