Plans submitted for latest phase of Telford Shopping Centre redevelopment

A planning application has been submitted for the latest phase of the multi million pound redevelopment at Telford Shopping Centre.

Sovereign Centros has put forward a detailed application for the redevelopment of Telford Bus Station while outline plans have also been submitted for the creation of up to 70,000 square feet of new retail units around Wrekin Square and a new entrance from Northfield Street.

The plan is to create a new mall within the centre, linking New Street and Sherwood Street, to improve shopper access around the town centre.

Guy Beaumont, developer and asset manager at Sovereign Centros, said: “The new bus station will provide modern facilities and a far more welcoming environment for our customers arriving into Telford by bus. At the same time it will allow us to build larger stores to accommodate the needs of fashion retailers.

“Work is progressing well on the Southern Quarter, which will see the creation of a new dining and leisure destination next to IMAX Cineworld and existing restaurants at Southwater.

“We are also well underway with the redevelopment of the former Asda store to create up to seven new retail units totalling 70,000 square feet. The Southern Quarter will be completed in the first quarter 2017 and the Northern Quarter will follow later in the year.”

Anchor tenants at the one million square foot centre include House of Fraser, Debenhams, Marks & Spencer and Primark. Other major tenants include H&M, Zara, New Look, Topshop/Topman, Next, Boots, River Island and JD Sports. Outline planning for 800,000 square feet of new retail and leisure space was secured in 2013.
