Pets at Home at New Hall Hey

As detailed in a Place North West article today, New Hall Hey Retail Park has welcomed its first tenant.

New Hall Hey Retail Park in Rawtenstall is now open for trading with Pets at Home opening this month and a Marks and Spencer Simply Food store coming soon.  NJL Consulting secured planning permission on behalf of West Register (Property Investments) Limited to widen the range of goods that can be sold from the c.6,000 sq.m New Hall Hey Retail Park in Rawtenstall, Lancashire so that one unit has an open retail consent and the rest of the Retail Park has open retail consent, except food.  New Hall Hey Retail Park has been vacant since it was constructed in 2010 and is a key regeneration priority for the local area.  The planning permission secured enabled occupiers to be secured for the Retail Park so that this prominent vacant site could, at long last, be brought into use. 

NJL prepared a Planning and Retail Statement to accompany the Section 73 Application, including a full sequential site assessment and retail impact assessment.  NJL also co-ordinated the Transport Assessment that supported application, submitted the application and negotiated it through to approval.  This site has a complex planning history that NJL analysed and submitted applications to formalise its planning position.  NJL is now working with Rossendale Borough Council to finalise the planning conditions and Section 106 Agreement for the application.   

Alongside the variation of condition application, NJL has also secured planning permission for non-material amendments, plant and trolley bays for New Hall Hey Retail Park.
