Monkey Village looks set to become a dental practice

The statement said: “

"It’s been amazing watching the little ones growing up and being their favourite place to come.

"Now it’s time to say goodbye.”

Now, an application has been made to Ashfield District Council to change its use from soft play to a dental practice, making alterations to its interior, new frontage and signage.

The application also seeks to increase the number of parking spaces at the site from 10 to 18.

No decision has yet been reached and the application will be considered by planners at a later date.
