HATFIELD — Heavily damaged by a fire in Easthampton last May, Full Tilt Auto Body & Collision is moving its operations to a building on Routes 5 & 10 in West Hatfield.

The Planning Board has scheduled a virtual hearing Wednesday at 6 p.m. on a special permit request to use the existing, non-conforming site at 164 West St. as its headquarters.

Planning Board Chairwoman Stephanie Slysz wrote in an email that the application is straightforward and follows a resolution of zoning issues related to use of the property.

Since the fire at 69 Ferry St. that caused an estimated $1.5 to $1.7 million in damage, Full Tilt’s owners, brothers Matt and Zac Ciaschini, have been operating the business, started in 2008, on a temporary basis at 376 Easthampton Road in Northampton.
