We have been involved in multiple retail schemes mostly in Leinster. These include town centre developments, district centres, neighbourhood centres, retail warehouse developments, supermarkets, and standard retail units.
When planning permission is sought for retail developments, such proposals are often required to supply a Retail Impact Assessment. We have prepared retail studies in respect of these developments.

The role of BPS in such projects includes leading consultations with the planning authority, managing and coordinating the inputs of the various design team members, whilst advising of all relevant Development Plan policies and objectives.
