Retail Needs Study (and update)

In light of permissions granted for additional retail floorspace in Erewash and the submission of an application for a major foodstore in Sandiacre (permission has since lapsed), the Borough Council commissioned retail consultants White Young Green to update the Erewash Borough Retail Needs Study (EBRNS) in order to bring up-to-date the retail need capacity assessment for the main centres within the Borough over the period to 2026.

This update primarily seeks to review Section 8 (‘Population and Expenditure’) and Section 9 (‘Retail Capacity Assessment and the Role of Existing Centres’) of the 2007 Study (see below).

Therefore, this update should be read in conjunction with the 2007 Study and where appropriate, the updated retail figures supersede those identified in the previous study. For ease of reference, this update adopts the same approach adopted in the 2007 Study.

A number of references are made within the Council's retail needs study documents to other studies and data sources used by White Young Green to assist with the production of their work. As these references are to external (i.e. non-Council) websites, the Borough Council cannot guarantee each remains 'live', with some content likely to have been removed for a number of reasons, but mainly because of the time elapsed since the data was originally published.

Retail Needs Study 2007

On the 6 June 2007 we adopted a Retail Needs Assessment. The study assesses the current retail catchment area, the value of expenditure for and the future retail capacity for Borrowash, Ilkeston, Long Eaton and Sandiacre up to 2026.

In addition it provides a health check for Breaston, Cotmanhay Road, Draycott, Little Eaton, Kirk Hallam, Sawley and West Hallam.

The study will be used as a material consideration when determining planning applications for retail development and will provide a robust evidence base for policies contained within Local Development Framework.

Greater Nottingham Retail Background Paper June 2012

This paper forms part of the evidence base on retail within the Greater Nottingham area, including Erewash. It is based on retail studies undertaken between 2006 and 2010 and includes reference to the Erewash Borough Council Retail Needs Study 2007 and update in 2010. It assesses these studies against the requirements and guidance in updated national planning policy and includes relevant updates.

The paper specifically contains updated health checks for retail centres within the area. Within Erewash this includes health checks for the emerging town centres of Ilkeston and Long Eaton and the emerging Local Centres of Borrowash and Sandiacre.
