New Porsche dealership to serve the whole of the North Midlands receives planning consent
Trebor Developments, working in conjunction with land owner Ask Developments, has confirmed that detailed planning consent has been granted by Wolverhampton City Council for a Porsche centre to be located at the Gateway site, Wolverhampton, on Junction 2 of the M54. The scheme was granted planning consent, in an exceptionally fast period of six weeks, reflecting the excellent support of the Council for this prestigious new development.
The centre will be operated by Stratstone, the UK’s leading luxury automotive retailer. Stratstone currently represents four Porsche Centres throughout the UK based in Bolton, Nottingham, Sutton Coldfield, and Wilmslow.
Bob Tattrie, Managing Partner for Trebor Developments, on behalf of the development partners commented: “We are grateful to Wolverhampton City Council for the speed and proficiency in which they dealt with this planning application, which has now allowed us to proceed with the contract, which will see work on site commence in Spring 2014. This is a major pre-let transaction with capital investment of over £5 million and we will deliver a very high quality branded Porsche centre for our tenants, with an anticipated opening in the early part of 2015”.
David Kay, on behalf of Ask Developments Limited, commented: “Despite stiff competition from other areas, we are pleased that Wolverhampton was chosen. We are grateful for the support and proactive approach of the City Council Planning Department who played an important part helping us to attract this prestigious client to the area”.
Developers, Trebor and Ask, were represented by Bulleys and the tenant by Innes-England.
