Plans have been submitted for a £15m retail park in Middleton, Leeds, to be anchored by Lidl and a B&M Homestore.
Acting on behalf of Commercial Development Projects, planning consultancy DPP’s Leeds office has lodged an application for St George’s Retail Park, on the site of the former Benyon Centre.
“This is a significant investment in a derelict site that will help act as a catalyst for regeneration of the area,” said Michelle Bath, director of DPP’s Leeds office.
“The site was previously promoted by a supermarket but then abandoned. When the development is completed it will provide up to 140 jobs for local people.”
The decision on the new planning permission for St George’s Retail Park is expected in the new year, with construction due to start shortly afterwards.
