South Norfolk Council's planning committee 
has given its seal of approval to Maurice Briggs' proposal to transform a wooded area off of Silfield Street, near Wymondham, which will see it create an outdoor learning environment for youngsters.

The plans include yurts, a summer house and poly-tunnels for planting, as well as shelters for six alpacas, which will share the site with the school.

The new forest school will provide a place for youngsters to learn about the world around them in an outdoor environment, taking part in activities such 
as growing, harvesting and den building, with 
it catering to a maximum of 30 
children at a time.

The scheme was awarded planning permission on Wednesday, after members of South Norfolk Council's planning committee voted in its favour.
