Tewkesbury business lodges expansion plans

A Tewkesbury-based success stories has lodged expansion plans.

Lakes Showering Spaces, who are based on Alexandra Way in Ashchurch is a family-run firm who have garnered a fine reputation for manufacturing innovative showering spaces.

Their current Alexandra Way home houses both their manufacturing base as well as a showroom.

In the past, the company have used a marquee to act as extra storage space and the latest plans are for a more permanent, albeit ultimately temporary, structure on the site.

Measuring in at 45 by 10 metres, it's no small enterprise as plans lodged with the help of Cheltenham-based planning experts Evans Jones show.

The plans state that the "temporary building" will be "place in situ for an initial period of 36 months" and to the north of the existing permanent building.

The 450 square metre building will be 5.2 metres in height at its eaves and the skeleton will be made from high-grade aluminium extrusiions.

The walling will be insulated 40mm thick steel sandwich classing while one electric shutter door and a pedestrian fire door are included in the designs.

The application states that the "proposed building will provide economic opportunities and help to facilitate the expansion and growth of Lakes Showering Spaces."
