LCP: discount retailer Poundland completes major refit of its Moor Centre store at Brierley Hill

 

London, 2017-Aug-01 — /EPR Retail News/ — Leading discount retailer Poundland has committed to Brierley Hill after refurbishing its store at the Moor Centre.

The high street retailer has undertaken a major refit at the 7,978 sq ft store, said Matt Pegg, asset manager for LCP, the leading national property, investment and management company that manages the Moor Centre.

“We are pleased Poundland has recognised the benefit of being in the centre and reinvested in their store which is well used by the local community,” he said.

“Since purchasing the centre two years ago we’ve been working hard to cement the scheme’s importance in Brierley Hill centre for larger retailers.  With free parking and easy access to the High Street, Poundland will further bolster the Moor Centre’s appeal and significance in this town”.

A spokesman for Poundland said: “We are delighted with our Moor Centre store at Brierley Hill and think it is currently the perfect size and shape for its function.”

The Moor Centre comprises over 12 stores, including leading high street names such as Boots, Iceland and Card Factory.  LCP are in discussions with other occupiers to take the remaining available units.

London, 2016-Sep-15 — /EPR Retail News/ — A proposed residential development on an under-used car park at a Brierley Hill shopping centre will help to breathe life into the area and create new jobs.

Evolve Estates is seeking planning permission to build 39 apartments and maisonettes at the Moor Centre on part of the existing car park, with a view to helping kickstart much-needed further regeneration in the town

Matthew Pegg, asset manager at LCP (London & Cambridge Properties Ltd), which manages the centre, said the planned scheme would invigorate an area that has historically struggled to attract new retailers and would act as a catalyst for further investment.

It would also provide local jobs within the construction sector and supply chain.

“Dudley needs affordable housing in particular and we are confident that this sustainable town centre development will provide not only a social need but also create benefits for local residents, businesses and shops, whilst utilizing a brownfield site” he said.

“We believe it will act as a catalyst for further redevelopment within the town centre, which has long been regarded as in need of investment, and we believe that it will be an active street screen, creating a safe and attractive environment in an area that can suffer from antisocial behaviour during non-operational hours.”

A planning application has been submitted to Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council for the homes, to comprise one, two and three bedroom homes with dedicated car parking spaces at the front of the development.

The scheme will reduce the number of car parking spaces at the shopping centre from 169 to 60, but independent analysis demonstrated that will be sufficient for the number of drivers who use the car park. Even following the introduction of free car parking in December last year, the car park has spare capacity with spaces remaining empty during peak hours.

Mr Pegg also stressed that any building would be sympathetic to the architecture of the local area.

“We wanted to take design elements from the surrounding Victorian villas architecture and echo that in the planned development,” he said.
