Plans to open a pet crematorium in Yatton have been given the go-ahead by North Somerset Council.
Planning permission has been granted which will see an industrial unit in Wemberham Lane changed to allow animals to be cremated.
The idea was put forward by Portishead-based firm Pet Angels Parlour and the ‘niche’ business proposal was supported by Yatton Parish Council.
However, there was some concern from neighbours in Wemberham Lane that the enterprise may attract rats and lead to bad smells emanating from the premises.
North Somerset Council has put planning conditions on the crematorium, including ensuring a plan to ‘manage odour’ is produced for experts to review before it opens.
