Key aims and challenges

This 70,000 sq ft retail development on the edge of Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire, was promoted by Claymore Group in a joint venture with Conrad Phoenix Properties.

Lets were agreed with B&M, M&S, Pets at Home and Wickes prior to the development’s construction.

The Section 278 highway works comprised the construction of an entrance into the retail park. Grovebury Road was widened and new right-hand turn lane installed. A bus stop was constructed outside the retail park.

In addition, highway drainage works were carried out, as well as diversion works to an existing high voltage electrical service.
