Vet another change of use for former pub!

A former pub – and more recently a 10-bedroom guest house – may become a veterinary practice.
Owners say trade at the King William in High Street, March, “has been disrupted” by Covid-19 and it has been on the market for offers over £400,000.
Minimal internal alterations are needed, says Morton & Hall Consulting Ltd who submitted the application to Fenland Council.
The agents say the change of use will allow Triovet Veterinary Practice in Park Street, Chatteris, to expand into March.
Up to eight full time jobs will be created, and possibly two part-time roles.
“This is a business application for change of use,” says Morton & Hall. “This is a local business expanding which should be supported.”
When it appeared for sale on property websites, it was suggested that “with a dedicated hands-on-approach and renewed website advertising this bed and breakfast could undoubtedly trade at higher levels of both turnover and profits”.
