A burgeoning physiotherapy business has won planning permission to move into larger premises in the centre of Ely.
Fenland Physio currently operates from a studio in Back Lane, off Broad Street, but, since launching two years ago, has seen an expanding clientele and its success meant that the business found itself in a position to move into a larger space.
Jacqueline Morris, of Fenland Physio, told the council: “We currently practice at 1A Back Lane however, due to our practice expanding, we are looking for a suitable premise within the centre of Ely.
“This new development would suit our needs perfectly having ground floor access, space for two good size treatment rooms and the central location with nearby parking.
“We provide a much valued service to the residents of Ely and in the two years since starting we are developing a good reputation for a quality physiotherapy service.

“We currently are four physios working part time but if we were able to move we would be employing further local people such as a receptionist and other health practitioners for example a sports massage therapist and podiatrist.”
Ms Morris’s plans won the support of the City of Ely Council and were subsequently approved by planning officer Lesley Westcott.

Ms Westcott said in her report: “It is considered that such a use is appropriate in this town centre location and would maintain and enhance the vitality and viability of the Ely shopping area.”
