    Black Friday - Friend or Foe?

    Black Friday was brought over to the UK from America by Amazon five years ago as its customers began to realise that the US shoppers had the best deals. 

    In the UK, Black Friday had been led by the three A’s, Amazon, Apple and Asda Wal-Mart.  Five years on and the phenomenon has really taken off.  But is it a US import that will prove as disastrous to our native habitat as the Grey Squirrel and Mink?

    NJL Success for NewRiver Retail

    NJL recently gained planning consent for a new Costa drive through restaurant in Clough Road Retail Park Hull on behalf of New River Retail.  The consent follows another success at the retail park for the amalgamation of two of the retail units, relaxation of goods restrictions and creation of an outdoor tent display area to facilitate occupation by GO Outdoors.

    Working with New River for the past 11 months at Clough Road NJL have overcome issues including flood risk, the retail tests of sequential site location and impact to help with the rejuvenation of the retail park.

    The Great Supermarket Squeeze

    It has been hard to miss the recent headlines about the changing market dynamics for supermarkets, with falling sales and profits for the ‘Big Four’ supermarkets and significant growth for the German discount supermarkets and high end brands.

    Commentators believe that this is the result of the squeeze in household incomes and changes to the way that we shop for food, so that people are now more budget conscious and the trend is for people to visit a number of shops for different products, rather than undertaking the traditional weekly shop.

    New Hall Hey Large 2

    Approval at Planning Committee for New Hall Hey Retail Park

    NJL Consulting has secured approval from Rossendale Borough Council’s Planning Committee on behalf of a major institution to widen the range of goods that can be sold from the c.6,000 sq.m New Hall Hey Retail Park in Rawtenstall, Lancashire so that one unit has an open retail consent and the rest of the Retail Park has open retail consent, except food.  New Hall Hey Retail Park has been vacant since it was constructed in 2010 and is a key regeneration priority for the local area.  The planning approval achieved will enable occupiers to be secured for the Retail Park so that this prominent vacant site can, at long last, be brought into use. 

    NJL prepared a Planning and Retail Statement to accompany the Section 73 Application, including a full sequential site assessment and retail impact assessment.  NJL also co-ordinated the Transport Assessment that supported application, submitted the application and negotiated it through to approval.  This site has a complex planning history that NJL analysed and submitted applications to formalise its planning position.  NJL is now working with Rossendale Borough Council to finalise the planning conditions and Section 106 Agreement for the application.
