DPP’s Leeds office has submitted a new planning application for St George’s Retail Park, off the city’s Middleton Ring Road.
Being developed by DPP’s client, Commercial Development Projects Ltd, the new retail development, on the site of the former Benyon Centre will be anchored by a new format Lidl store and a B&M Homestore.
“This is a significant investment in a derelict site that will help act as a catalyst for regeneration of the area,” says Michelle Bath, Director of DPP’s Leeds office. “The site was previously promoted by a supermarket but then abandoned. When the development is completed it will provide up to 140 jobs for local people.”
The decision on the new planning permission for St George’s Retail Park is expected in the new year, with construction due to start shortly afterwards.
