Jobs boost for West Country attraction.
Plans for a £2 million pound extension at Puxton Park providing 40 jobs in a new garden centre, large gift shop and bigger restaurant, have been approved.
The family run visitor attraction submitted plans to North Somerset Council last November, for an 8,000 square metre extension to existing farm shop and restaurant.
Managing Director Alistair Mead said:
"We invest in new attractions every year and are thrilled North Somerset Council has given us its full backing towards this new extension.
The project will help to boost the local economy through the creation of 40 jobs, plus a further 20 jobs during the construction phase.
We look forward to getting on with the building works during the quieter winter months and aim to open the new garden centre next year."
