Burton Joyce: Plans submitted to transform former church into doggy day care centre

This former Methodist church in Burton Joyce was up for sale with a price tag of £295,000 last year (2022) with pews and organ still in place.


Plans have been lodged to transform a former church into a doggy day care centre in Burton Joyce. 

Planning application documents have been submitted to Gedling Borough Council by Player Roberts Bell Architects Ltd of Car Colston requesting a change of use for Burton Joyce Community Church.

This former Methodist church in Burton Joyce was put up for sale last year with a price tag of £295,000 with pews and organ still in place.

The planning application and supporting documentation states that the building was used as a church up until mid-2022 and has remained vacant since. The building was purchased freehold in late 2022.

The application seeks to change the use from Class F1(f) (Local Community Class) to Class E (Commercial Service and Business) and use as a doggy day care centre (sui generis) – implementing Class V permitted development rights to allow the interchange between the doggy day care centre and use Class E.

The application suggests that the development will increase the number of employees at the building from zero to 15 full time employees.

Submitted planning documentation advises that the site does not currently benefit from on site vehicle parking. This will remain unchanged by the proposed change of use.

No new floor space is to be created as a result of these proposals. No internal or external alterations are proposed.

Full planning details for planning application 2023/0075 are available HERE .
