Property developer and contractor, Barnfield Construction, has proposed a new retail and leisure scheme in Clitheroe town centre in partnership with Ribble Valley Borough Council.  The scheme called Market Quarter will be marketed by Lambert Smith Hampton.

Situated just off Station Road, the proposed development will cover approximately 50,000 sq ft and contain a range of different-sized retail/leisure units and a 60 bed hotel.

Dan Symonds, Barnfield Construction’s head of development, added: “The proposed scheme promises to provide a new retail and leisure experience for Clitheroe, not only with the creation of a new market, but we also hope to secure a number of high-quality retail and leisure operators not currently represented in the town.”

Planning permission is due to be submitted in autumn 2016, once prospective occupiers have been found for the units.

Gareth Hine, an associate director on Lambert Smith Hampton’s retail consultancy team which is marketing the scheme, said: “On the basis that Clitheroe is the largest town in the Ribble Valley and has a thriving population and tourist industry, it could be said that some investment in the town centre is long overdue.

“We are aiming to attract some prestigious retail and leisure brands to Market Quarter and believe that, due to the local demographic and limited retail provision in the town at the moment, that there will be plenty of interest from potential occupiers.”
