Planning permission has been granted to convert a former bank into a health and wellbeing centre for women. The Blossom Charity in Eye applied in June to change the use of the building in Broad Street, which has stood empty since Barclays Bank closed in September. The frontage of the building will undergo minor repairs, but will remain structurally unaltered. In their supporting statement, the charity, which has outgrown its current facility in Castle Street, says: “The building will provide a safe space for social and recreational interaction. “The revitalisation of this building, for a beneficial, successful local charity, is of great community benefit.” Two exercise studios and four treatment and coaching rooms would be needed to run events, including the centre’s “inspirational women” series.
