The former Ann Summers store in High Street, Sunderland.

In August, Sunderland City Council received an ‘change of use’ application for the shop space on 259 High Street West.

The applicant, listed as Mr Kiong Tiew Ling in planning documents, hopes to revamp the vacant site.

If plans are approved, the new nail salon is expected to create six jobs – three full-time and three part-time.
