Welcome to the public consultation website for the proposed development seeking a new extension, including a garden centre to the existing B&M store and reconfiguration of the car park at Curzon Street, Maryport, CA15 6DA.


DPP will shortly be submitting a planning application to Allerdale Borough Council for the proposed development for a new extension, including a garden centre to the existing B&M store and reconfiguration of the car park at Curzon Street, Maryport, CA15 6DA. Ahead of submission of the planning application, we are providing you with the opportunity to view and comment on the scheme.

In light of the Government’s advice regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, we have elected to consult interested parties using a combination of online and offline methods, including a letter drop and the creation of this online consultation webpage. This public consultation is an opportunity for you to engage with our vision for the site and to provide us with valuable feedback which will help shape the future of the site.

We ask that you provide your feedback on the proposals by completing the feedback form, or by email or post (details below).

The Proposal

The site lies within Maryport to the eastern side of Curzon Street and to the north of the river Ellen. A number of trees of varying size and maturity are located between the car park and the river. The Site lies within the Maryport Conservation Area and the defined town centre.

The proposed development seeks the delivery of a new extension, including a garden centre to the existing B&M store and reconfiguration of the car park. The extension will provide an additional 3,185sqft (296sqm) of retail floorspace to the southern edge of the existing store.

A new Garden Centre is also proposed to the south of the new extension, which will be 7,500sqft (697sqm) in size and will be uncovered. All existing vehicular and pedestrian access points to the Site will remain as existing but the existing car park will be reconfigured to provide a more efficient parking layout, the proposal will involve a reduction in the existing car parking area of 34 spaces. The store will remain fully operational during the works.

The design of the proposed development is in keeping with the surrounding area and the existing store; a tile and pitching system is proposed to provide an extension in keeping with the original building. However, with the inclusion of materials such as new high performance, pre-fabricated composite clad and new glazed sliding doors will give the extension and new garden centre a modern look.

The proposed extension will play a part in facilitating the ongoing sustainable growth and development of Maryport as a Key Service Centre.
