Professional Carwashing & Detailing

Councilors speak out against carwash

April 25, 2013

HENLEY, ENGLAND — A carwash plan for a parking lot here was proposed to the town council, the Henley Standard reported.

The April 8 story stated that plan calls for nine parking spaces to be converted to a hand carwash and valeting service with a canopy and an office. The wash would be open seven days a week.

The town council suggested that the application be refused. On councilor said he believes carwashes should be on industrial estates and was concerned for the carwash’s neighbors.

“Twenty spaces along to the left there are two houses with large gardens,” Councillor Martin Akehurst said in the story. “It could be quite detrimental to the people living in these houses, particularly when they are sitting in their gardens.”

The decision should be made by May 7, and plans for another hand wash were refused permission last year.
