A charity caring for children with motor disorders is to expand after planning permission was granted for it to convert a former car dealership on Wendover Road.
The PACE Centre, provides clinical and educational services for children with physical disabilities such as cerebal palsy.
The new centre will care for children from their birth to age seven and chief executive Amanda Richardson welcomed the expansion, which will see a specialist reception and year one class set up and a community services classroom.
She said: “Now we have successfully secured planning permission, we are very excited to begin work on our latest development.
“Early intervention is critical in achieving the best possible outcomes for young children with motor disorders.
“Our new centre will mean that more children will be able to have the early input they need to help them achieve their full potential in life”.
In August 30 volunteers came to the site to help transform the grounds from a state of wilderness, ready for the internal changes.
The new centre will also have a play area with adapted equipment, a small independence flat for older children and two nursery classes for 12 to 14 children aged between three and six.
