After two years of negotiations, Puxton Park has finally received permission to build a nursery from North Somerset Council.

The authority this week gave the attraction’s plans to build a nursery – which will care for 35 children throughout the year – the go-ahead after long-winded discussions.

Construction could begin as early as November.

Managing director, Alistair Mead, said: “This is something we’ve wanted to do for years so it is fantastic to finally have permission to start building.

“We’ve always had a deep-rooted passion for supporting educational facilities which will benefit the local community and we feel Puxton Park is the perfect environment to encourage children to grow up with a love for the great outdoors.
