Provide an attractive and modern retail development
Reduce the need to travel to garden centres further afield
Represent significant investment in the area, including construction employment
Incorporate hard and soft landscaping, integrating the development with the wider area
Source products locally wherever possible
Include electric vehicle charging spaces
AN EXCITING DEVELOPMENT FOR ALNWICK
Alnwick Town Centre contain a range of shops and services which help to meet the needs of both residents and visitors.
However, it does not offer potential to accommodate larger format retail developments such as this.
The proposed scheme would bring improved consumer choice to the town along with a significant economic boost.
