Third time lucky for property firms

A deal involving Salloway Property Consultants and FHP for a new Lidl store has gone through after planning permission was secured at the third time of asking.

After two refusals, permission was eventually granted by Derby City Council paving the way for the development at the junction of Uttoxeter New Road and Mercian Way.

Derbyshire-based development and investment company Speeds (Burton), which owns the two-acre site, had seen planning permission refused, firstly for reasons of access and secondly on design grounds.

However, after entering into a conditional agreement with the German discounter, which was represented by FHP, a planning solution was found and the 2,100 square metre food store development can now proceed.

Stephen Salloway from Salloway Property Consultants, who negotiated the sale on behalf of Speeds, said: “This is a very accessible site on the edge of the city centre next to a densely populated residential area.

“It can be easily reached on foot or by cycle, as well as by car. A convenience store is a logical use for the site and I am sure will serve the local community well.

“The initial refusals were frustrating but Speeds’ tenacity, particularly in pursuit of an access solution, was commendable and with the addition of Lidl’s experience and design skills, a satisfactory solution was found at the third time of asking.”
