A tattoo parlour has been granted permission to open in Portishead.

North Somerset Council has given the green light to Point Break Tattoo to open in Stoke Road, replacing a former mortgage advisory firm which used to be based off the High Street.

Permission was needed to use the building for a business other than financial services, and the council was satisfied the plan would enhance Portishead.

Its report said: “It is considered that the proposal would enhance the mix of uses, and footfall at the centre and would not adversely impact. In this way the development would contribute to the improvement of the town centre.

“The proposal does not include any external works and would not unacceptably harm the characteristics of the existing building or the character of its surroundings.”

No objections to the scheme were raised.
