Group hopes the change will attract high street retailers seeking affordable space

Property company Quintain has secured planning permission to change the use of 55,000ft² of space at the Wembley Retail Park, moving away from larger items such as white goods and towards smaller items and high street fashion.

The 212,000ft² park will now be reconfigured in line with the group’s overall retail strategy for Wembley City, which includes the development of the London Designer Outlet, the first such scheme within the M25.

Phil Cottingham, managing director of retail at Quintain, commented: “This planning success will enable Quintain to capitalise on the ongoing demand from high street retailers looking to gain greater representation on retail parks which offer good quality, affordable space.

“It also marks another important step forward in Quintain’s strategy to revitalise the wider retail offering at Wembley, improving future income streams for the group as well as the retail experience for residents of and visitors to Wembley City.”
