2020 build

Given the impending closure of Debenhams we intend to submit a planning application as soon as possible with the hope that we can meet all the necessary conditions and approvals to coincide with the closure in January 2020. 

We would anticipate the build programme taking approximately 12 months, with the redevelopment phased, with the exact ordering and sequence to be agreed once a contractor has been appointed.

The majority of the work is internal and so we envisage little disruption to the major thoroughfares during the build programme and we will seek to make the sites as self-contained as possible.

We will also ensure that all contractors will be signed up to the Considerate Contractor scheme and we will operate a site travel plan for all traffic to be developed in conjunction with the Council.
