We understand the ever changing competitive retail market and the need for change for developers, landlords and tenants.
Our dedicated team has a proven track record of delivering planning permission for complex retail, leisure and mixed use projects. This includes bespoke advice, from early concept stages, through to the submission of applications and appeal work.
We work across the retail sector, from major retail centres to retail parks and individual units.
We advise property companies and investors on maximising the value of their retail assets through a range of approaches – from applications to Local Plan representation and have a strong track record in delivering planning strategies which generate higher investment returns.
We have also worked for major retailers, both food and non-food, to manage their portfolio. That can involve the opening a new store, expanding a portfolio, or simply securing permission for advertising and signage.
We benefit from the experience of working in and for the private and public sector, and understand the potential challenges of delivering new retail and leisure development.
Some of our key skills within the retail sector include:
- Pre-acquisition appraisals and strategy
- Retail policy analysis to support applications
- Expert Witness at Public Inquiry
- Planning policy formulation reviews
