Coventry Developer Unveils 5m Plan

Coventry-based developer Deeley Properties has unveiled plans for a 5 million shopping development in Derby.

The company, which has divisions throughout the Midlands, is planning a retail development on the former TC Harrison Group dealership on Normanton Road, creating more than 100 jobs.

The Proposed Shopping Development

Deeley Properites will apply to Derby City Council for planning consent later this month.

If the scheme gets the go-ahead, the food supermarket chain Lidl will occupy the largest of the seven units (1,240 square metres), there will be a restaurant (232 square metres), a building for community use and 160 parking spaces. The six other shop units will total 3250 square metres.

Peter Deeley, chairman of the developers, said:

"This is a very important scheme for Normanton and for Derby. It will be a terrific boost for the Normanton district centre and will attract shoppers as well as keep existing customers in the area.

"We have carried out research in the area and we believe the site is ideal for a mixed-use retail development. It will be an enormous boost both for local people and businesses, and strengthen the role of Normanton as a district centre.

"Businesses that cannot at present find suitable premises in the area are bound to make the Normanton Road area more attractive shopping location for local people.

"The development will be attractively landscaped and planted to make it a green asset to Normanton and allow people to enjoy their shopping in a relaxed atmosphere.

"As well as improving the shopping opportunities it will also provide a considerable number of jobs in construction and when it is completed.

"This will be our first major project in Derby and we are very much looking forward to working in the city."

The development has won the backing of the Association of Derby Inner-City Business, an organisation of local traders in the Normanton area.

Spokesman Simon Chaplin said:

"We welcome the opportunities, offered by this development, to the local community in terms of employment and trade.

"We are of the belief that the planned development will enhance the opportunities for existing and new businesses in the area by encouraging the footfall of shoppers back into the community."
