Respondent: Indigo Planning

Agent: Royals Shopping Centre

Representation Summary:

The Council should also consider directing new large comparison retail developments onto existing car parks in order to help strengthen the town centre and prevent it from going into decline. This would achieve the town centre first approach to retail of the NPPF. Car parking could then be re-provided in the form of under croft or multi storey parking facilities. This would assist in relieving pressure on existing parking facilities whilst bolstering the town centre, thus enhancing its vitality and viability.
