Spalding based dance group Diamondz DG hopes to change the use of a showroom at Pode Hole to a dance studio.

Abbi Thompson, who has taught in various venues for the last ten years, said: “It would just be brilliant to have our own premises.

“We would be able to expand and put on a few more classes than we already do.”

The showroom is in Bourne Road, next to Kingsway Tyres, which owns the premises.

Miss Thompson says her classes currently run around those held at the Fitness Company, in Spring Gardens, and “the car park never has more than a handful of cars from our dance school due to being ‘drop and go’ classes”.

In supporting information accompanying her planning application, Miss Thompson says she does not envisage any parking problems at the Bourne Road site, where there are 15 parking spaces, and there is no issue with keeping the music level to a minimum.
