PLANS for a new beauty salon in Cwmbran have been given the go-ahead.

The salon will be located on Llandowlais Street in the Two Locks area of Cwmbran, on the site of a former hairdressers 'G Style Barbers' – next door to the popular Jade Garden Chinese takeaway. Torfaen County Borough Council approved the plans last week.

The proposals have been submitted by a Miss Rebekah Hennah and show the salon would be spread across two floors.

The ground floor would house the majority of the salon, with the first floor being converted into a separate kitchen and treatment room.

According to the planning application, the site has previously been used as a hairdressers and as office space.
