New children’s day nursery for Jaywick Sands

Monday, 9 October, 2017

A new children’s day nursery looks set to open up in Jaywick Sands.

Little Pals Nursery Ltd put in a planning application for the site in Broadway which was previously only able to be used as a Sure Start day care centre by Essex County Council.

The substantial building is in extensive grounds with a garden set out with play equipment and a covered play area. It also has parking for around five cars at the site.

There was a restriction from 2001 which prevented the property being used as anything but a family support centre but that has now been lifted by Tendring District Council (TDC).

The nursery will employ five full-time staff and one part-time and TDC has received no representations over the scheme.

It is planned to operate from 8am to 6pm from Monday to Friday as a community facility.

TDC decided that while this is effectively a new permission the proposal is acceptable in highway safety and amenity terms. It was previously used by parents and children and that will remain so.
