Project Description

Out of Centre Retail & Leisure Park


Broughton Shopping Park, Chester

Since 2010, DPP has provided British Land with planning consultancy advice at Broughton Shopping Park near Chester, and project managed several major planning applications aimed at enhancing the development’s overall retail and commercial leisure role and attraction to both customers and operators.

Following the success in 2013, when DPP secured planning permission for an 11 screen multiplex cinema, 5 sit-down restaurants and associated infrastructure improvements, consent has also been obtained in 2014 for a Marks & Spencer store at the Shopping Park.

DPP is continuing to advise and progress further planning applications aimed at improving the shopping park’s overall environmental quality and shopping experience.


  • Full Planning Application
  • Coordination of the planning application process through to decision
  • Report Preparation including Sequential Assessment
  • DPP has consistently provided an exemplary planning service, which has been instrumental in our achievements at Broughton. DPP will, I am sure, continue to take a lead role and assist us in securing further positive outcomes at the Shopping Park, to the benefit of both British Land and the local community.
