The then Treblers Nursery was bought in 1985 and is 300m away from the garden centre but is now said to be redundant in the face of larger commercial nursery operations.

The proposal is to build two, three, four and five bedroom properties set in groups.

Lanndia Development Services has been appointed with Peter Brett Associates to represent the landowners.

An outline planning application could be made in the summer.
