South Rings Builds Momentum
NJL Consulting secured planning permission for Momentum Business Centre@South Rings on behalf of Roundhouse Momentum Developments Ltd. This development of 5,444 sq.m of employment space will create 43 business units within the South Rings area of Bamber Bridge, near Preston. These units will be offered on flexible terms to promote small and expanding local businesses that can operate as Use Class B1, B2 or B8. South Ribble recently topped an assessment of job creation in the North West by international auditors Grant Thornton, outperforming both Liverpool and Manchester. The success of the South Rings area is a key reason for this position and this planning consent will allow this area to continue to support local business growth and job creation.
NJL prepared the Planning Statement and co-ordinated the planning application submission. During the application process NJL worked closely with South Ribble Council to achieve appropriate planning conditions.
This development follows on from Roundhouse’s success at Momentum Business Centre@Buckshaw and represents another step towards delivering South Ribble Council’s objectives for this important regeneration area. It represents part of NJL Consulting’s ongoing role advising Roundhouse in relation to the South Rings area which includes recently securing an open non-food planning consent for the 6,690 sq.m Roundhouse Retail Park@South Rings.
