Client: Euro Garages
Location: Clitheroe, Lancashire
Sector: Industrial and Commercial
Project status: Planning stage
PWA planning was commissioned by fast-growing forecourts operator Euro Garages to submit an outline planning application for the development of two drive through restaurants and a food retail store on the existing Barrowbrook Business Park, adjacent to the A59 on the outskirts of Clitheroe.
What we did
This site within the business park already benefited from extant planning permission for the construction of a self-storage warehouse and ancillary office facilities. However, this development held little prospect of commencing in the future leaving the land vacant and unused.
PWA Planning was brought on board to put forward a compelling case for an alternative and viable use for the site, successfully demonstrating the potential for significant job creation under the proposals for two drive-through restaurants and food retail store.
The proposals will help to ensure a mixed, balanced and sustainable economy for the business village and the wider area, and the intended use is expected to weather well against existing and future economic trends. A full planning application is currently being developed for the project following positive feedback from the planning officers.
