Fletchers Garden Centre could soon have an indoor play area as part of extension plans.
The garden centre in Eccleshall has a tearoom and crazy golf course. But the catering area could grow if plans submitted to Stafford Borough Council get the go ahead.
Rupert Fletcher is also seeking retrospective planning permission for car wash buildings.
A statement sent to the council said: “The site is an existing successful garden centre. The site is also linked to Gentleshaw Wildlife Centre.
“The main proposals are to increase and improve the catering facilities. They will increase the kitchen size and restaurant area. It will also include an indoor children’s play area and family room.
“The extensions will have a small impact on the open countryside, being low rise with a design to match. The improved area and rooms will give added value to this established business.
“With the closing of the local car wash facilities, the car wash on the site is valuable to the local community.
“The expansion of the site will not detract from businesses in Eccleshall town centre. It’s likely to improve the economy of the area.”
