Puxton Park in Hewish has had a planning application to create an 8,000sqm new garden centre and extend the existing gift shop and restaurant given the go-ahead by North Somerset Council.
A second application, for a 5,600sq metre outside sales area to run alongside the garden centre, was deferred until the committee’s next meeting as councillors wanted clarification on where a proposed delivery yard and car park would go.
Park managing director Alistair Mead said: "We invest in new attractions every year and are thrilled North Somerset Council has given us its full backing towards this new extension.
"The project will help to boost the local economy through the creation of 40 jobs, plus a further 20 jobs during the construction phase.
"We look forward to getting on with the building works during the quieter winter months and aim to open the new garden centre next year."
