Formerly the site of a VW car dealership & workshop (sui-generis) an application was approved for the conversion of the site to a garden centre.
Although the frontage of the site operated in a retail nature, the vast expanse of the site meant that the property required conversion to A1 Retail.
With the site located on a busy main road, a full application was supported by transport & traffic flow statements including details of car parking arrangements.
Along with the planning officer, the highways officer was content that proposals would not contravene planning policy and would provide a positive addition to the area.
Planning was subsequently approved within the target 8-week decision period, with the business now in full operation.
