MALCOLM SCOTT CONSULTANTS SECURES PERMISSION FOR EXTENSION AT FRON GOCH GARDEN CENTRE

Work has begun on a £1.5million extension at a Caenarfon garden centre, after planners at Malcolm Scott Consultants secured permission to extend the centre and increase its parking facilities.

Planning specialists at the Worcester-based business acted on behalf of Fron Goch garden Centre in Pant Road to undertake a pre-applications consultation further to working closely with the client to create a five-year development plan. 

The business then submitted a full planning application for 673m² of heated shop extension, together with a 435m² canopy and a new entrance. 

Further plans to increase the car park by 33 spaces were also submitted, with all proposals approved by Gwynedd Council.

Tracy Hubbard of MSC said: “Fron Goch has ambitious expansion plans for this year to build on the centre’s success in being named the top centre in Britain at the UK Garden Association Awards.

“Having identified the opportunity to extend its retail space, enhance its entrance and display areas and add to the customer experience with the additional car parking facilities,as part of its five-year development plan, we are delighted that the proposals were given the green light to help them set the wheels in motion.

“This will help an already exceptional centre enhance its customer experience, thereby increasing footfall to the centre and allowing it to showcase and enhance its product offering further,” she added.

Construction work has started this week.
