It is with regret that the Town Council have learnt that the planning application made by Dainton Services to develop the Rock Nursery site has been withdrawn. You will recall that they planned to create a farm shop, nursery, café and play area on the site. This was a project that had the support of the Town Council because we considered it would be a good use for the site and smarten up the entrance to the town. We were also hopeful that it would prove to be a destination attraction that would draw in custom from surrounding areas.
The following is a letter from Dainton Services explaining, from their point of view, why the application has fallen.
