Clowes Developments has achieved practical completion of a new retail park in Long Eaton.

Stadium Business Park is a commercial development, which will be home to a new Lidl supermarket and Wickes store.

The project involved IMA Architects, which provided all architectural services and acted as principal designer on the scheme.

IMA worked alongside Millward Consulting Engineers and Roe Developments to deliver the site for Lidl and Wickes, which will now carry out fit-outs of their respective units.

The 1.68-hectare Stadium Retail Park site has been built on a brownfield former industrial site, off Nottingham Road, which had stood derelict for a decade.

All amenities, landscaping and boundary treatments are now in place including car parking for 170 vehicles, including EV charging, parent and child parking and disabled spaces, and a service yard.

It is expected that the new Wickes store will open before the Easter Weekend, and that the Lidl supermarket will open this summer.

Marc Freeman, director at Clowes Developments said: “The site had been derelict for 10 years and in the planning stage since 2018, so it’s positive that the site has now been developed and turned into an asset for the local community, creating jobs and bringing economic benefits to the town.

“We are sure the new Lidl and Wickes stores will be very popular.’’

Joe Travers, associate director at IMA Architects said: “This is our latest project with Clowes Developments, and we are pleased that the site has been delivered on time and will soon be a thriving retail location.”
