Graypaul Ferrari Maserati Motortrade Car Dealership
A planning application for a change of use from Food factory to motortrade car dealership at Lenton Lane was initially considered inappropriate by Nottingham City Council Planning Officers.
However following the appointment of Ashall Town Planning Consultants by the applicant, we successfully argued the benefits of the scheme and its compatibility within the constraints of Nottingham City Councils Adopted Planning Policies.
As a result planning permission was granted rather than being refused as was their original intention and a large prestigious car showroom and workshop was subsequently constructed.
Raymond was in house planning consultant of the property division of a major plc motor group.
He has personally obtained numerous planning permissions for motor trade use, preparing and submitting planning applications and planning appeals involving motor trade premises and dealerships, car showrooms, car / vehicle workshop, and roadside related development such as petrol filling stations.
We can help existing motor trade professionals expand their existing businesses or find new or additional premises.
Car / Van / Commercial Vehicle Sales, HGV, LGV, Workshops, MOT Bays, or Bodyshops. Tyre & Exhaust Centres, Car Hire, or Car Wash.
Change of Use, or an increase in opening hours?
We have the experience to help.
For those not already established in the motor trade , if you are thinking of setting up a car sales business for the first time, you must consider how you will obtain planning permission for your operation particularly if the proposed site has not previously been used for car sales.
If you don’t you could end up spending large sums establishing your new business only to end up being served with an enforcement notice or stop order on you and your new motor trade or car sales venture.
Contact us first appoint us as your consultants and we will help you get the planning permission you need or at least let you know that the premises you have in mind are not suitable. Either way we can save you time, effort and money.
