GLASGOW'S "first flotation therapy centre" will open after being given the go-ahead by the council.

Applicant 'Float Glasgow Ltd' sought permission to open the "state-of-the-art" centre in a currently vacant unit in Morris Park, Rosyth Road.

It previously housed a cake manufacturer.

Planning bosses approved the plans, with conditions that the unit is only used between 8am-8pm Monday to Sunday.

A supporting statement within the planning documents read: "Using our specially designed Orbit float pods, we provide our customers with a sensory deprivation experience while they float effortlessly in a dense Epsom salt solution.

"This provides an environment for pure relaxation, providing rejuvenation and healing from injury - as well as relief from chronic pain."

Proposals detailed operating four floatation pods across four private float rooms each with its own showering facility.

The supporting statement went on to say: "The facility will generate employment and be managed by three staff working on rotation with one member being on call at any one time."
