Council planning officials refuse hand wash and valet proposal

PORT GLASGOW, Scotland — Inverclyde Council planning officials denied the application for the Tesco Hand Car Wash and valet services, stating that the development would have “an unacceptable impact on the visual amenity.”

PORT GLASGOW, Scotland — Waves’ plans to locate a new Tesco Hand Car Wash and valeting operation in the parking lot of the Tesco superstore in Port Glasgow were rejected by Inverclyde Council, according to Inverclyde Now.

The nationwide company wanted to place the facility on nine parking spaces, stated the article, with four of the spaces used for a wet wash area and another four for a dry valeting area which would come with a canopy.

The last of the nine parking spaces would be used for “a portable customer reception cabin,” added the article.

Inverclyde Council planning officials denied the application for the carwash and valet services, reported the article, stating that the development would have “an unacceptable impact on the visual amenity” and the proposed structure would not “be of high standard.”

In a statement submitted with the application, Waves said that they feel the hand wash would generate “new and sustainable economic growth” for the community, the article continued, and added that the business would also have a positive impact on local employment, “creating an estimated four full-time and four part-time jobs.”

“The proposal is functional in its design, and we do not believe it will be visually obtrusive due to its very limited size and height,” noted Waves in the article. “We believe that the car park will have adequate capacity for this proposal, even at the busiest time of the year.”
