    Submission for Canvey Island Development Site

    NJL has submitted a planning application for 7,920sqm of A1 retail floorspace and a 167sqm Costa Drive Through at a site on Canvey Island on behalf of NewRiver Retail.  The application was validated earlier this month (9th June).  The site lies on the edge of Canvey Island adjacent to Roscommon Way and to the south of an existing Morrisons Unit.  NewRiver purchased the site from Morrisons approximately 12 months ago as part of the ‘Ramsey Portfolio’ of 13 sites.

    The ‘out of centre’ site already had outline consent for 4,877sqm of A1 non-food retail floorspace, therefore, NJL undertook 10 months of discussions with the Local Authority and relevant professionals before the application for the larger scheme was submitted.  As well as the Costa Drive Through, the proposed development incorporates a 2,369sqm unit for occupation by B&M, a 1,394sqm unit to be occupied by Sports Direct, a 1,602sqm foodstore as well as two other 1,045sqm non-food units.

    Result at Enterprise 5, Bradford

    On behalf of our portfolio holder client NewRiver Retail (UK) Limited, NJL submitted a Prior Approval Notice to Bradford City Council (BCC) regarding a change of use of Use Class A1 retail space to Use Class A3 food and drink floorspace.  Further to regular discussions between NJL and the Council, BCC confirmed that prior approval is not required thus allowing a food or drink outlet to occupy the vacant unit.

    Enterprise 5, a designated retail centre, was bought by NRR last year.  Prior to NRR purchasing the thirteen sites which comprise the Project Ramsay portfolio, NJL Consulting prepared pre-acquisition planning audits for each site (including Enterprise 5).  The Project Ramsay portfolio is formed of retail parks or development sites which were previously owned by Morrisons.  As with other submitted and approved applications, such as last month’s approval at Whitwick Retail Park in Coalville, this Prior Approval Notice demonstrates NRR’s desire to improve the marketability and the overall value of their acquired sites, and how NJL Consulting is working with our client at pre-acquisition stage and beyond.

    Planning Approval at Whitwick Retail Park, Coalville

    On behalf of our client NewRiver Retail, NJL Consulting has been granted planning approval for a full planning application to enable the subdivision of one of the existing retail units, installation of mezzanines in 4 units and frontage works at Whitwick Retail Park in Coalville.  The retail park was one of thirteen sites NewRiver bought from Morrisons in Summer 2015.  These thirteens sites formed the Project Ramsay portfolio which NJL Consulting has been advising on.

    In a bid to welcome new tenants to Whitwick Retail Park, NRR wanted to modify the retail park’s existing consent.  Due to the age of the retail park, they also wanted to refurbish the Park’s exterior with new facades and landscaping.
