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.

Alan you are beyond daft.Regardless of who owns the property, it will bring in more tourists who in turn will spend money at local business', attractions and shops.Your brain doesn't have limited uses you know, engage it more often.

What happened to the disabled people who used to go there? Oh yes, they stay at home now, thanks to the council budget cuts.

Bit late, this was known at least a year or so ago when the Council closed the day centres
