Pharmacy parking levels judged adequate

Plans for a pharmacy and shop with a flat above have been agreed in a Shetland conservation area after a reporter decided the design and parking provision were acceptable.

The council maintained that seven parking spaces would be inadequate, given that customers with health problems would need to park on-site. But the reporter noted that few pharmacies in town or village centres have their own parking. A public car park lay immediately adjacent and a further facility with 20 spaces was two minutes' walk away, he noted.

He also concluded that the proposed design, while modern, would have an appearance consistent with the surrounding area.
