An "outstanding" nursery is set to move to a new site after plans which handed them a lifeline were approved.
Yorley Barn Nursery School has occupied a barn in Upper Road, Little Cornard, for over a decade but was recently asked to leave the premises - leaving managers heartbroken.
However, the nursery - which employs 12 people - was handed a lifeline by a nearby farmer and plans for its move have now been approved by Babergh District Council.
The farming family agreed to sell the company a plot of land south of the A134 in Assington on a four-year payment plan, subject to planning permission which has now been approved.
The location of the new barn, which will house three nursery rooms, a series of offices and a kitchen, was described as “perfect” by the company’s director Donna Page.
