A garden centre in Sussex has received planning permission to expand its premises and create new access.
Adur District Council’s Planning Committee voted unanimously to grant planning permission for the changes to the Mayberry Garden Centre in Portslade near Brighton.
Owner Tates of Sussex now has permission to enlarge its premises, making its indoor and outdoor retail areas bigger, with an extra floor space of more than 2,000 square metres. New access would include diverting a public right of way.
The plans would affect the eastern third of the vacant Eastbrook Allotments site which is also subject to a planning application by Tates for a car showroom.
A spokesperson for Tates said: “All aspects of the application have been meticulously and diligently considered.
“The highways authority have confirmed their support for the new access arrangements which will remove the need for deliveries to use the same access as the garden centre customers.”
