A new tenant is preparing to move into a vacant shop unit in Saffron Walden.

The charity Age UK has applied to Uttlesford District Council for permission to erect signage at 2 The Arches, in Hill Street.

The unit was formerly home to Domo, a retailer selling handbags, luggage, and travel items, which closed earlier this year.

The signs will not be illuminated and will be black, powder-coated aluminium.

Saffron Walden Town Council and Essex County Council raised no objection to the plans.

Age UK has a network of charity shops across the country, selling both donated a limited range of new items. It provides services and advice to older people across the country,

The plan was submitted in October and a decision is expected from the district council early in the new year.
