On behalf of Possfund Custodian Trustee Limited, NJL Consulting is delighted to confirm the submission of an application to vary the approved retail park scheme at Bridgwater Retail Park in Somerset. The latest applications to bring forward the delivery of a c.150,000sq.ft expansion of the site.
News and results coming out of the first half of the 2017/18 financial year demonstrate the continued push of German convenience stores on the UK convenience goods market. As Aldi and Lidl advance on displacing the UK ‘Top Four’ (Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Asda, and Morrisons), it is the former who has surpassed already confident revenue targets.
This morning Aldi reported revenues up 13.5% in FY16. This surpasses optimistic targets envisaged by industry leaders.
Thank you to everyone who attended our annual Professionals’ Lunch on Thursday of last week (14th September).

As our guests last week will be aware, NJL is sponsoring Forever Manchester as our chosen charity of the year. Forever Manchester is a charity that funds and supports community activity across Greater Manchester. Since 1989 Forever Manchester has delivered over £36 million into local communities benefiting 1.1million people.
Acting on behalf of Pillars Group Limited, NJL is pleased to confirm the submission and validation of a planning application which seeks to regenerate a neglected gateway site on the approach to Preston City Centre. The planning application seeks full consent for a car servicing garage with associated parking, landscaping and signage.
The site had previously been earmarked for residential and then more recently retail development. However, changes in market interest opened an avenue for the site to be used for employment purposes instead. Car servicing operator IN‘n’OUT has signed up to the scheme.
