Tong Garden Centre is celebrating after securing planning permission for the next stage of their growth plans.
Bradford Council’s Regulatory and Appeals Committee voted to approve Tong Garden Centre’s plans.
They include a new two storey building, a new plant canopy, a bespoke soft play and event space. It will also include the development of the lakeside area with log cabins for educational use.
Tong’s Mark Farnsworth said: “We’re delighted to continue with the work that we started. We want to turn Tong into one of the top destination garden centres in the UK.
“We’ve had such positive feedback from our customers about our progress so far. We have taken these plans to the council well ahead of our original plan.”
Work will start in January, with plans for the plant canopy to be completed by March. The 1155m2 soft play and event space will be open by the summer.
Mr Farnsworth concluded: “Whilst we are a garden centre led by gardening products, we will be so much more than a garden centre. The soft play and events space will be a great addition to our facilities.”
