Supporting plans for a new John Deere dealership in Cumbria

Project overview

Client: Cornthwaite Group
Location: Kendal, South Lakes
Sector: Commercial and Industrial
Project status: Complete

This exciting project saw us working in partnership with our client the Cornthwaite Group, a leading UK specialist in tractor and agricultural machinery sales and servicing.

What we did

We supported our client in submitting a planning application for a new John Deere tractor dealership and servicing centre at Milnthorpe, near Kendal in the South Lakes region of Cumbria.

We provided pre-commencement planning advice and led the preparation and management of the application process through to the discharge of planning conditions prior to commencement and completion on site.

Developing such a large-scale specialist retail vehicle sales facility in an out-of-town location presented policy challenges and a plethora of other development management issues, including highways, landscape, and amenity issues.

All of these were managed within challenging timescales to meet John Deere dealership requirements. Now fully operational, the centre provides valuable vehicle sales and support services for farmers and farming businesses in the region.

What our client said

“PWA Planning guided us through the planning process with ease, tackling numerous issues in a pragmatic and professional manner, always finding solutions to overcome any obstacles presented along the way. They are a pleasure to deal with, responsive and approachable and we would recommend them for any development you may be considering.”
