A BECCLES pre-school that is currently run out of a primary school classroom could be set to get its own purpose-built centre.

If given the go-ahead, the project would see a permanent home built for Earlybirds Pre-school in the playground of the school where it is already based.

A BECCLES pre-school that is currently run out of a primary school classroom could be set to get its own purpose-built centre.

If given the go-ahead, the project would see a permanent home built for Earlybirds Pre-school in the playground of the school where it is already based.

Currently operating out of a classroom at Ravensmere Infant School on St Benedict's Road, Earlybirds Pre-school would be able to accommodate slightly higher numbers of children if permission is granted for the proposal.

Suffolk County Council asked Beccles Town Council for its views on the application for the project that would enable “wraparound” childcare to be provided, both for the pre-school and school pupils at the beginning and end of the day.

Members of Beccles Town Council's planning committee discussed the application at a meeting on Tuesday.

Committee chairman Alan Thwaites told fellow members: “I have to say I am very impressed with what they are proposing. I was also very impressed with the planning for the future with regards to the wider community.”

Councillors voted to recommend approval for the project by Suffolk County Council when it decides on the application.
