De Pol continue to advise the national supermarket retailer Iceland Foods on planning matters in relation to the rolls out of their new Food Warehouse format stores across the country.
Food Warehouse stores are approximately twice the size of traditional Iceland stores offering a wider product range and large bulk packs. The stores are generally located in Retail Park locations where premises of a suitable size are available and benefit from surface level car parking which will serve the store.
Due to the nature of the format of Food Warehouse stores the premises are generally located in out-of-centre locations with their use restricted by conditions. De Pol is advising Iceland on a national basis in relation to these stores and assisting in resolving planning issues and impediments to the businesses expansion.
Elsewhere De Pol continue to advise Iceland on their existing store portfolio in relation to their operation and potential threats from town centre redevelopment schemes.
