THE former Sunnycrest Nursery at Newchurch has been sold to become a caravan park.
Following the closure of the nursery, in Wackland Lane, the Isle of Wight Council-owned site has been bought by the Caravan Club, which owns and operates the adjacent Southlands Camping Park. A price of £390,000 was agreed last year.
The planning committee on Tuesday approved plans to demolish greenhouses and outbuildings, and redevelop the site. Permission was granted for 45 holiday pitches and a swimming pool.
