2000 Retail Development Survey

9. Largest Developments by Planning Stage

9.1 Table 20 shows the ten largest retail schemes at each of the planning stages identified in this report. The key trends from the table may be summarised as follows:

  • Largest applications: Six were in the Glasgow & Clyde Valley area. (4 of them in Glasgow itself). All were on brownfield sites or associated with existing town centres. All were for mixed retail uses or retail warehouse parks.
  • Largest approved schemes: These were much more widely distributed than in previous years - a feature this year being two large developments in Aberdeen. Eight were brownfield developments and 8 of the ten were town centre/edge of centre developments.
  • Largest refused consent without the prospect of further appeal: These were again fairly widely scattered throughout the country. All were new build proposals and none were town centre proposals.
  • Largest refused consent but with the possibility of appeal/inquiry/call-in: Only six fell into this category and were also distributed fairly widely. Five were out of centre proposals.
  • Largest developments under construction: Four of these were located in Edinburgh and three in Glasgow, although the largest was the Overgate Centre in Dundee. All, except one, were new build schemes and all were on brownfield sites.
  • Largest schemes newly trading: These were widely distributed and included the Overgate Centre in Dundee, Braehead retail warehouse park and two developments in Livingston. Eight were on brownfield sites.
  • Largest withdrawn schemes: The only proposal of significant size was in Glasgow. Most were smaller convenience format schemes outwith the Central Belt.
