Garden centre in housing plan

The owners of Royal Mires Nursery near Crowborough, East Sussex have applied to Wealden District Council for planning permission to build housing on the nursery site.

The covering letter from David Bedford of DHA Planning says the garden centre has been "in decline and running at a loss in recent years" and applies to demolish the 1,958sqm garden centre and build four four-bedroomed houses and five five-bedroomed houses on the site.

Royal Mires is owned by Rumwood Nurseries, of Langley, near Maidstone. The nursery supplies roses and hardy stock to the trade and public and covers 160 acres and is not part of the application.

To view the planning application, see WDC’s website (Ref: WD/2016/1618/F).
