Diaper Spa hearing

Atkinson officials have denied a permit for a new spa catering to adults who role-play as children wearing diapers, which was planned for the space above the three-car garage of a Pope Road residence.

Members of the Zoning Board of Adjustment voted Wednesday night to deny the permit application submitted by Dr. Colleen Murphy of 23 Pope Road for The Diaper Spa, described as a “physician-run diaper salon” aimed at “all diaper-wearing individuals who seek acceptance, respite, and care.”
