JLL consults on 52,450 sq ft of retail regeneration

Liberty Properties plans two new schemes

Manchester, 14 August 2015 – The planning consultancy team at JLL in Manchester has submitted planning applications for two Aldi-led schemes totalling circa 52,500 sq ft on behalf of Liberty Properties.

The applications, which have been submitted to Denbighshire County Council and Cheshire East Council cover retail development projects at the Station Yard site, Denbigh, which has been vacant for 10 years, and Manor Business Park in Holmes Chapel respectively.

Both schemes will be anchored by Aldi, with the retailer to occupy a 19,364 sq ft unit in Denbigh and 19,418 sq ft in Holmes Chapel.

If approved, construction on both sites will begin in early 2016.

Joanna Gabrilatsou, Planning and Development Director at JLL in Manchester, said: "These schemes will help regenerate previously underused sites in both of these areas and vastly improve the towns' retail choices – something which both of these communities have called out for."

Emyr Williams, development director at Liberty Properties, said: "The developments will drive inward investment and job opportunities in Denbigh and Holmes Chapel. In addition, with the end result offering greater shopping convenience to the towns we've already received a positive response to the proposals from the communities."

The Planning team at JLL advised on both schemes. Architects for the Denbigh scheme are Leach Rose Walker whilst architects for the Holmes Chapel scheme are The Harris Partnership. Mason Partners and Wild Commercial Property are Liberty Properties' agents.
