A Planning application has been submitted to open a 4d baby scanning clinic on an old retail unit.
The property, at 33 Church Street in the town centre, was formerly a craft shop.
The planning application states that theground floor unit would be used mainly for scans, but may also have a gift shop attatched.
A normal 2D scan uses ultrasound, resulting in a flat grainy grey image.
A 4D scan combines sections of 2D images to create a 3D image which you can see moving in real-time.
The scans usually cost anywhere between £89 to £169.
The application states: “The shop has been vacant for some time, and a family focused buisness would be considered a good route to re-occupancy”.
The proposed opening hours would be 9am-5pm Monday to Saturday.
