The application for a change of use for Probus Garden Centre in Cornwall, which was withdrawn at the beginning of December 2015 because of "technical issues", is to be resubmitted.

The plan for the garden centre includes a main sales building, partially covered sales area and an open external sales area, as well as customer car parking area for 369 vehicles and six coaches;

Planned internal sales are is 3,100sqm, with partially enclosed sales area at 1,136sqm and external sales area 4,100sqm. Plans propose to extend the customer café/restaurant to 703sqm. 

The first planning application was submitted in 2004 by Danning & Symons to Carrick District Council. A further permission expired in 2014.
