Retail & Leisure Assessments

Clarendon can offer planning advice and strategy for the promotion and development of major retail, leisure and mixed use town and city centre schemes, regional shopping centres, retail parks, designer outlets and foodstore developments.

Our experience ranges from the preparation of detailed retail assessments to expert witness at planning inquiries.

  • Retail and Town Centre Evidence Base Work;
  • Sequential Assessments for retail and leisure developments
