Elizabeth Truss MP

In a speech on the 7th April 2014, Elizabeth Truss MP, she said, ” As of yesterday, it will be quicker, simpler and cheaper for nurseries to open in buildings not currently used for childcare – making it possible to convert office without planning applications.  This is a huge opportunity to make childcare more accessible for parents and children – just think of the opportunities for businesses to offer onsite nurseries for their employees.”

Need a Nursery Designing?

With experience in Early Years Nursery Accommodation and Education Buildings, Clive Elsdon Building Design is well placed to assist any business looking at providing these facilities!  Whilst Planning Approval for change of use may not be required to provide the Nursery, if there are external changes to allow it to function these may need approval. Internal alterations to allow the Nursery to be established may also be required, need building regulation approval and construction drawings.
