Farm shop plans to add hand wash on-site

CHELTENHAM, England — To further diversify the services already offered, Greatfield Farm Shop plans to open a hand carwash on-site.

CHELTENHAM, England — The Greatfield Farm Shop in Up Hatherley Way in Cheltenham has put up signs advertising a new hand wash is coming soon, according to the Gloucestershire Echo.

The new hand carwash will “further diversify the services already offered at the site,” reported the article.

Permissions have already been granted because the wash will be using existing buildings in place, stated the article.

Planning documents report that the hand wash will hire four or five employees, continued the article, and will be open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday to Saturday and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday (and bank holidays).

To collect any debris or dirt collected during the washing process, informed the article, the business will install a draining trap to prevent any excess material from clogging the current drains in place.

A nearby resident wrote a letter objecting to the carwash plans during the application process in 2015, reported the article, which stated that increased traffic from the carwash “could be dangerous.”

Planning officials asserted that they believed any influx in traffic sparked by the hand wash “would not cause any harm” regarding road safety because the increase wouldn’t be a significant change, added the article.

Furthermore, noted the article, officials stated that the visibility of the entrance and exit points “was excellent” and the carwash would also bring economic benefits.
