NJL Bags a Whopper for Huddersfield
NJL Consulting has secured planning permission for a Burger King restaurant with drive-thru facility at Leeds Road Retail Park in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire. This permission forms part of NJL’s role as planning advisors to La Salle Investment Management which includes providing advice in relation to Leeds Road Retail Park.
The new Burger King restaurant will have a high profile position within the Retail Park, fronting Leeds Road and it will significantly enhance the appearance of the Retail Park from this important frontage.
The planning application was supported by a Planning and Retail Statement which included a sequential site assessment. The site presented its own challenges as it is within Flood Zone 3 and a new entrance from a trunk road was required. These issues were overcome through working closely with Kirklees Council, flood risk and drainage specialists and highway consultants, so that the commercial requirements of the development were met, including a new vehicular access on to Leeds Road.
