A former pharmacy on Carisbrooke Road, Newport, could be turned into a laundrette.

An application has been submitted to the Isle of Wight Council by Deven Thakrar to change the use of the former LloydsPharmacy – which, as reported by OnTheWight, closed in January.

The application states:

“The existing unit has been used for a chemist dispensary, but this has now ceased.”

Minor amendments
The application says the change of use will require very minor amendments to the existing site and will not alter the character of the building.

It adds:

“This is a much sought after service to Newport and in great need with the change in housing.

“The drying facilities will be a great asset to the community.”

Have your say
The application is available for comments on the Isle of Wight Council’s website.

Splendid idea for the area, great for larger items, I’m sure there’s a need.
