Applicants James Ansell and Amy Wakefield want to erect the building at an address on School Green Lane.

The planning report states: “The applicants are proposing to utilise the Longcroft Luxury Cat Hotel franchise. This company has a number of catteries around the country. The submission states that the business provides low-key, high quality, niche service for cat owners and their catteries are designed to cater for small numbers of cats.”

Around 35 letters of objection have been received from residents, raising concerns over noise, parking and privacy.
