Cortonwood Shopping Park Gets Go-Ahead

Helical Retail’s planned 98,000 sq ft Cortonwood Shopping Park has been granted planning permission on appeal. The new scheme will form a £30m extension to the existing Cortonwood Retail Park, owned by Black Diamond investments.

Cortonwood Shopping Park will comprise of retail and restaurant units, and Helical Retail expect to start work on site in early 2015.

Adrian Russell of Helical Retail said: “The existing Cortonwood Retail Park is already very successful and includes tenants such as Morrisons, Next, Argos, Asda Living, Boots and B&Q.  [The extension] will bring more quality retailers to this vibrant destination and create much needed jobs in the area.”

Edgerley Simpson Howe is the letting agent for Cortonwood Shopping Park.
