British Land winning its appeal to develop a new Next store in the city

8th July 2013

Reacting to British Land winning its appeal to develop a new Next store in the city, Richard Wright, executive director of Sheffield Chamber of Commerce said: -We welcome the news.

We believe it is a sensible decision and very much in line with the retail forum strategy for the city region. -As a Chamber we are still very committed to helping develop a distinctive city centre offer and we do not believe this decision in any way compromises that. Our feedback on the City Centre Master plan is very consistent with this message. -A massive test of Sheffield's ambition is about how we proceed with the new city centre retail development, which must offer something bespoke, represent quality and provide a special environment for people to visit. -We must get on with these plans now. However, the development has to be one which reflects the future world of retailing and puts us ahead of the opposition.
