Policy REC 4: Day nurseries

Proposals for the development of new, or the extension or intensification of use of existing day nurseries and play groups should meet all of the following criteria:

  1. the development provides for an adequately sized and well screened garden for outdoor play;
  2. the proposals are of a scale appropriate to the locality and will not unacceptably harm the amenity of local residents by virtue of noise, loss of privacy and traffic generation;
  3. adequate car parking is provided in accordance with the car parking standards set out in LPS Appendix C 'Parking standards'; and
  4. there are satisfactory vehicular arrangements for the dropping off and collection of children without causing a highway danger.
