Planning approved for Midsummer Place’s first phase
Last week, approval for Midsummer Place’s application to make changes to The Boulevard was granted, meaning work can move forward imminently.
The predominantly aesthetical changes form the first phase in a series of major developments to the premium shopping centre that will create a dramatic new retail and leisure destination. Work is expected to start next month and complete early in the New Year.
“We are pleased to have received approval for our application as this now permits us to start implementing the exciting changes to The Boulevard.” Said Shelley Peppard, Centre Director at Midsummer Place.
The approved plans show a fresh new look to the existing food units, as well as four purpose-built double cabins that will house eight unique street-food-style businesses to the area. These will be occupied by several of Midsummer Place’s existing food operators, plus a number of new businesses joining the centre, and collectively, will offer wide variety and vibrancy of cuisine for visitors.
Shelley adds: “We have agreed some exciting new deals with operators that will be any food lover’s dream and bring a fresh new look and purpose to the Boulevard. We can’t wait to be able to share this news with our customers!”
During the works, there will be no disruption to businesses or the customer experience.
