Plans submitted for the scheme by Ms Louise Batham of St Kenelms Close in West Bromwich have been backed by borough planning officers for the revamp of the site at High Street, Princes End.

Officials said it will bring an empty unit back into use and boost the town. It will bring 12 full time and four part time posts.

The nursery will be open between 8am and 6pm, Monday to Fridays. There are two council car parks close by for visitors.
