Project Description

Regeneration Retail Park




On behalf of the landowners, Ryedale Estates Ltd, DPP have secured the redevelopment of this key vacant site in Guisborough. The site was formerly occupied by the ESCO Foundry, which closed in 2014, with the loss of a high number of jobs.

Regeneration of this key site was particularly important to Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council and was broadly supported, despite its out-of-centre location. The Retail Park is due to open in October 2017 and key lettings include Marks & Spencer Simply Food, a B&M Homestore and Pets at Home.

Cleveland Retail Park forms part of a wider masterplan area within which DPP has also secured permission for employment and residential uses.

DPP successfully made the case, in impact and sequential terms, for retail development on this site. We subsequently secured major amendments to the approved scheme in order to accommodate the B&Q requirement. All permissions were granted under delegated powers. DPP were also instrumental in running a successful community consultation exercise.


  • Asset Maximisation
  • Strategic Advice
  • Community Consultation
  • Co-Ordination of planning application process through to decision
  • Report Preparation
  • We commissioned DPP to give strategic planning advice and to submit several planning applications within our £50 million Cleveland Gate project in the market town of Guisborough Cleveland. Applications included Retail, Residential, Bungalows, Offices and Employment uses. Their advice and attention to detail secured planning consents quickly and efficiently for a relatively complex Master Plan involving several key players. DPP was fully involved in all aspects from application to public consultation and in working closely with our Professional Team and with the Local Planning Authority. We have no hesitation in fully recommending DPP whose service and advice we regard as first class
