CALA Properties lodges Motherwell planning application

Published:  04 December, 2007

CALA Properties has lodged a planning application with North Lanarkshire Council for the refurbishment of the Brandon Shopping Centre in Motherwell.

The plans allow for the development of the former Asda store, providing up to 74,000 sq ft of modern retail space, with new frontages to the mall and car park. Six new units have been designed to allow existing retailers in the town to expand and also to attract new traders not already represented in Motherwell.

A new feature entrance at Brandon Parade South will provide a new focus and sense of identity for the centre, and will be a key part of the planned improvements.

CALA acquired the Brandon Shopping Centre in February 2007 and joint agents Cushman & Wakefield and Eric Young & Co have already started marketing the new space

CALA managing director Alasdair MacConnell said: “Our new plans will provide the sort of modern quality retail space which retailers now demand. We have worked closely with the local council on our plans to provide a better shopping choice and experience for local people, and we hope that the planners at North Lanarkshire Council will give the green light to our plans.”
