This beauty salon can open despite the lack of disabled access

Councillors Bob McCann, Adam Hirst and Peter Garbutt agreed. Coun Garbutt said: “People routinely meet these barriers and are told it’s too difficult to provide disabled access. I know this is an old building but it’s a human rights issue.”

Councillors agreed the salon can open but said they want the owners to reconsider the access.
