Malcolm Scott achieved planning permission for the UK’s largest garden centre development on behalf of Bents Garden Centre: a project which involved a major extension within the Cheshire Green Belt.
The complete project entailed a 153,292sq m garden centre site (37.9 acres), parking for 796 vehicles. The site also boasted a 9,000 sq m covered retail area and 4,000sq m of canopies.
MSC oversaw the market assessment, detailed planning application including design and access statement, preparation of a retail impact assessment and preparation of a sustainability statement in order to obtain permission.
“A fantastic achievement”
Ron Bent, Chairman, Bents.
