New Submission: CityHeart LTD - Mesnes Road, Wigan
NJL Consulting have submitted a full planning application to Wigan Council, on behalf of CityHeart Ltd, for the development of a convenience foodstore at Mesnes Road, Wigan.
The site is brownfield and previously contained a petrol filling station which was demolished in July 2008. The site is now vacant and is in poor condition, breaking up the building line and attracting fly tipping. The proposed development will enable the site to be brought back into productive economic use while complementing the existing retail offer within the Swinley Local Centre.
NJL prepared a Planning and Retail Statement as part of the application, including a sequential sites assessment demonstrating that the proposed development could not be accommodated at an in-centre location, and that the edge-of-centre site was therefore appropriate. The rest of the application package was also coordinated by NJL, who worked closely with the project team throughout the scheme development.
