Comments made: This site has developed over the years from a nursery garden to a garden centre with a substantial retail/food and drink element albeit it has retained the garden centre character of open air displays and cultivation.

 

The present proposal appears to tip the balance more fully towards retail/food and drink and the question that needs to be answered is whether the emphasis would go so far to the extent that the use would be inappropriate within the Green Belt. It may be a fine judgement but it is certain that a reasoned judgement should be made.
