Prohibition notice served to Ipswich hair and beauty salon owner for operating from garage during coronavirus lockdown




The owner of a hair and beauty salon in Ipswich has been handed a prohibition notice by the borough council for operating from their home garage during the second coronavirus lockdown.

Officials served the notice to Kutivz Kollection yesterday, which means the owner will face a fine if they reopen while restrictions remain in place.

A spokeswoman for Ipswich Borough Council said: "Personal care facilities such as hair, beauty, tanning and nail salons must remain closed under national lockdown restrictions."

She added that the 'vast majority' of businesses in Ipswich are 'complying with the rules and making the town safer for everyone'.

"We would much rather work to help businesses comply with the law but will issue prohibition notices and fixed penalty fines where regulations are being breached," the spokeswoman said.

Last month, prior to the second national lockdown, the borough council issued a £1,000 fine to a barber shop in the town for breaking Covid-19 rules.
