MEMBERS of Royston Town Council have turned down a scheme for the creation of a nursery in the middle of a small industrial estate.

It was the second occasion that the plans had been turned down - in spite of being amended from the original scheme.

Sunhill Nursery had submitted an application to use a unit at The Maltings, in Green Drift, Royston as a day nursery for a period of three years.

But the town council's planning committee decided on Monday evening that it could not support the application.

Cllr Bill Prime said he could see the reason behind the nursery pursuing the scheme once the original plan had been rejected.

Cllr Lynn Berry said the site was not suitable for nursery premises although Sunhill had reduced the scheme to using just one unit instead of an original two.

New town councillor Lindsay Davidson described the plan as "totally ridiculous".

The committee said it was concerned about the location of a nursery where there was danger from traffic movement.
