An OFL otta applications!
NJL Consulting have submitted 6 planning applications at various Oak Furniture Land stores across the UK on behalf of JB Global to facilitate the expansion of the existing stores. The company is seeking to increase their store presence by building on online sales with a large store portfolio to compliment the online offer.
The Oak Furniture Land stores are located at Hedge End, Bristol, Sheffield, Burnley, Stockton-on-Tees and Norwich. The applications submitted to the individual Local Planning Authorities are for the extension of existing and creation of new mezzanine floors at the stores which will accrue a further 4353 sq.m of sales floorspace.
NJL have coordinated the submission along with the various project teams including highways and architects who produced the supporting Transport Statements and architecture plans for the application. The application submissions also considered and addressed all of the retail tests with each including a detailed sequential site assessment and retail impact where necessary. NJL also prepared the in house Planning and Retail Statement.
NJL continue to work with the local planning authorities and stakeholders through to the early determination of the 6 applications.
