Caddington in Bedfordshire could be step closer to having its garden centre back, with the latest planning application for the former Wyevale site.

According to Luton Today, site owner Raymond Gill is awaiting a decision from Central Beds Council on an application for ‘reserved matters’ after being given approval for outline plans for a new garden centre.

Wyevale sold the land to Gill after the original centre burned down in 2008.

In late 2010 he lodged plans for a 960 square metre garden centre and 1,440 square metres of office space on the site.
