Planning for retail development has become increasingly complicated in recent years, but our dedicated team can help you navigate ‘town centre first’ planning policy.
Whether you require advice on securing permission for an out-of-town retail park, a strategy for taking forward a major town centre scheme or a planning application for a new foodstore, our team can assist.
We also have a strong and proven track record in promoting commercial leisure and food and drink uses, including cinemas, health clubs/gyms and pubs, restaurants and hot food takeaways.
Alongside our work for private sector clients, we also undertake local authority retail studies in both England and Wales, as well as providing advice on town centre strategy and critiquing planning applications for retail development.
We work closely with CBRE's dedicated Retail team, which offers services including agency, asset management, lease consultancy and valuation.
We also work with CBRE's Specialist Markets team, which provides trading-related valuations and investment advice on pubs and urban leisure, as well as a variety of other alternative assets.
