OWNERS of a car wash and valet service in Burton have been denied permission to continue running the service.
The car wash, which had been running in Dover Road, Horninglow, on the former site of K&G Motors, has been ordered to close by East Staffordshire Borough Council, who were concerned about the level of noise and disturbance that was being caused to nearby residents.
A planning report released by the council raised concerns about the impact on ‘health and quality of life’ locally.
It read: “Evidence suggests that there are unacceptable noise impacts on nearby properties. The use of the car wash is likely to generate continued noise and disturbance which would be detrimental to the amenities of nearby residents.”
