Quintain has secured the final planning permissions required at its Wembley Retail Park to change the entire 212,000 sqft scheme from bulky goods to open A1 (non food).
Quintain say the change of use was sought in order to reconfigure and revitalise Wembley Retail Park in line with the Company’s overall retail strategy for Wembley City which includes the development of the London Designer Outlet, which will be the first designer outlet scheme within the M25.
The recent permissions were for the refurbishment of 90,000 sqft of space (on which A1 consent has previously been granted) and a further 55,000 sqft change of use to Open A1 from bulky goods.
Commenting, Phil Cottingham, Managing Director of Retail at Quintain, said: “This planning success will enable Quintain to capitalise on the ongoing demand from high street retailers looking to gain greater representation on retail parks which offer good quality, affordable space. It also marks
another important step forward in Quintain’s strategy to revitalise the wider retail offering at Wembley,
improving future income streams for the Group as well as the retail experience for residents of and visitors to Wembley City.”
