Dog day care company, Pooch’s Yard in Thetford, hopes to move to new town premises
A dog day care company in Thetford is hoping to expand to a new premises as part of efforts to grow its business.
Pooch’s Yard has applied to change the use of an industrial unit in Telford Way which will provide more space than what it currently has.
The new facility would include a retail space, grooming facility and outdoor area and it would care for up to 40 dogs.
It already has a site in Telford Way, which looks after about 75 dogs a week, caring for many different breeds.
There are no plans to change the structure of the building although a fence would be erected at the rear of the property to provide an outside area for the dogs.
The business said that more jobs will be created by opening the bigger site, including two full-time staff members and one part-time employee.
Breckland Council officers have recommended it is approved, with councillors to decide next week if it should go ahead.
However, if approved, the business will have to wait before a noise management plan is put forward before the development can take place.
