A FAMILY bakers could soon be on the move in Yatton.
Pullins Bakers wants to move from its High Street base to a new home near Arnolds Way and Horsecastle Farm Road.
Pullins wants to demolish two agricultural buildings, before a larger facility is built for the bakery firm. A formal planning application has been submitted to North Somerset Council this month.
The progress brings to an end Pullins’ search for a long-term solution.
The bakers has a rich history and strong ties to the area having been based in North Somerset for almost 90 years and bosses hope the creation of a purpose-built home will allow it to go on and be successful for many more years to come.

Pullins, having realised the ‘cramped’ conditions of its current home were no longer sufficient, had spent two years looking at eight possible locations before a final decision was reached to move towards Yatton’s North End, near Smart Systems.
A company spokesman said: “The business needs to modernise its operation, make significant investment and allow for expansion. This is only possible at a new location. The family owners of Pullins Bakery wish to grow the business locally retaining highly-skilled and valued staff.”

The proposed new facility would allow Pullins to increase its workforce from 60 to 75 people. Pullins said any move would not affect its bakery shops in Yatton or Clevedon.
