A FURNITURE shop in Orford could be turned into a nursery.

Planning permission is being sought from Warrington Borough Council in order to convert World of Furniture, based in the Osnath Works on Lythgoes Lane, into a creche.

Dunky’s Day Nursery, which currently operates sites on Old Liverpool Road and Barrow Hall Lane, is behind the proposals from the 796sq m unit.

The new nursery would open from 7am to 7pm from Mondays to Saturdays, creating three full-time jobs plus two part-time roles.
