PLANS have been submitted for the creation of a canine hydrotherapy centre in Thatto Heath.

Proposals, which were received by the council earlier this month, seek to convert an orangery at a detached house on the junction of Elephant Lane and Radley Street.

The planning application says the premises would be "for the rehabilitation of dogs and other small animals after surgery, or improve their general fitness through exercise".

The business would be open from 10am to 7pm on weekdays and Saturdays and 11am to 4pm on Sundays.
