Go-ahead for new Exmouth tattoo parlour

A new tattoo parlour can open in Exmouth after a planning application for the business was approved.

Proposals for a change of use at 33 Exeter Road were given the go-ahead by East Devon District Council (EDDC).

Applicant Stuart Matthews had asked for permission for the shop space to be used as a tattoo parlour.

In his application to EDDC, Mr Mathews said: “This will not be your usual skull and black-style studio, but a clinical, modern-looking shop with consultation front of shop and tattoo work being done behind a partitioned area.”

The new Exmouth tattoo parlour will be open from Monday to Saturday, 9am to 6pm, and employ five people, according to the application.

Granting the application planning permission under delegated powers, an EDDC officer said: “The proposed use is considered to be compatible with the surrounding uses and would not impact unreasonably on the character and appearance of its surroundings.”

The premises was formerly home to Whiskers and Wagtails before it relocated along Exeter Road.
