A private cosmetic treatment company has submitted plans to convert an empty shop unit in East Wichel into a private medical clinic. The company, Anna Medical Aesthetics Ltd, wants to convert the ground floor of a building on Trevello Road into a clinic with 3 or 4 treatment rooms. The proposal says that the treatment rooms will be rented out to ‘interested practitioners (i.e. medical aesthetics, woman health [sic] and family planning services, physiotherapists, chiropractors, podiatrist, dietitians, etc…)’. At the moment Anna Medical Aesthetics, which only started trading last year, appears to operate from a residential street in Royal Wootton Bassett.
This is a building with a long planning history, having previously had permission granted for it to be a shop and then, when that failed, for conversion to flats, which didn’t happen either.
The application, S/19/1532, can be viewed on Swindon Borough Council’s planning portal and is open for comments until at least 18th November.
Update, 26th January 2020: The planning application has now been withdrawn.
