Retail and Commercial Assessments

Assessing and evidencing development needs for retail and economic schemes is often required to demonstrate the suitability of proposed development.  

We can carry out the economic analysis required to support food and non-food retail development proposals of all sizes.  Our analysis can demonstrate the acceptability of such development having regard to the impact of proposals on town centre trade, vitality and viability and local consumer choice. 

We also undertake sequential approach assessments of any more centrally located sites in order to evaluate their suitability and availability.

We have secured planning permission or are engaged in promoting schemes, on behalf of a number of clients, for non-food retail development, supermarkets, superstores and neighbourhood convenience stores across the country.
