A retail park justification is required for proposals that provide additional retail floor space (including mixed use with retail as part of the scheme) within a defined retail park.
If required, the justification should include:
- details of the type of goods to be sold and why this cannot be accommodated in a town centre
- delivery or service requirements which cannot be met in a town centre
- customer parking requirements which due to the nature or quantity of goods being purchased require adjacent parking.
