Oak Furniture Land Expansion in Gateshead

NJL Consulting is pleased to announce that it has obtained planning permission on behalf of JB Global for a mezzanine floor in the Oak Furniture Land store at Metro Retail Park, Gateshead, Tyne and Wear.  The mezzanine floor will increase the trading area of the store by 840 sq.m, which is an increase of 40%, to create a store with a sales area of over 2,000 sq.m. 

The mezzanine floor forms part of a nationwide programme of extensions to Oak Furniture Land stores and allows Oak Furniture Land to better serve its customers in the North East.  Oak Furniture Land has a strong online offer and the store extension will means that the Gateshead store can display a greater range of the products that are available online. 

Metro Retail Park is an out of centre location, adjacent to intu Metrocentre and so the planning application was supported by a sequential site assessment that was undertaken by NJL Consulting.   NJL has worked with Gateshead Council to secure a quick determination of the application and led discussions to secure requisite planning obligations through a Section 106 Agreement.
