Not another hairdressers!

This is what Maldon residents are shouting after another salon is set to appear in the High Street among the 12 already there.

The shop will appear at number 103 after shoe shop Buckles closed this month.

Heybridge resident Paul Devenish, 24, was outraged at the plans and branded the situation “ridiculous”.

The former Plume School pupil, who now works as a contractor for Transport for London, said: “We need shops to draw the public in, not a town of hair salons.

“To my knowledge I can count nine off the top of my head.

Maldon District Council need to put a limit on a number of shop categories there our in our town.”
