Bentley Bridge Retail Park Expands! New Jobs to Come?

New Planning Permissions for Bentley Bridge Retail Park.
Wednesfield is an historic settlement in its own rights, set within the City boundaries of our thriving Metropolitan City of Wolverhampton.
Sureena Brackenridge – The Labour Candidate for Wolverhampton North East said to the team gathered “I congratulate both the Bentley Bridge Retail Park on moving the retail offer for our city forward, at a time of huge concerns about the economic future of retail shops and importantly the jobs they deliver to local people. Its pleasing to be able to congratulate the Bentley Bridge Retail Park for reconfiguring their Retail Park to accommodate and then attract new investment, and at the same time winning three new Planning Permissions from Wolverhampton City Council.
Sureena went onto say – “Bentley Bridge Retail Park is such an important asset now to Wednesfield, it is one of the prime retail sites in our city. It already delivers 500 local jobs, and it has strengthened its retail offer following this series of successful planning permissions to the City of Wolverhampton Council.”
These are the planning permissions with an estimate as to when they will be trading.
Starbucks – planning permission has been granted for a new drive thru coffee shop – this should be open before the end of the year.
Sports Direct – planning permission has been granted to facilitate SD’s relocation from Unit B6 to Unit B1. The new store will be open by June.
Home Bargains – planning permission has been granted to facilitate Home Bargains’ relocation from Unit C4 to Unit A1/A2. The new store will be open by September.
Councillor Phil Bateman (Labour,Wednesfield North) added “ it is expected that along with the new premises and the new permissions these three new planning permissions will add another estimated 150 jobs and part time jobs, to the retail workforce that will staff these initiatives. All of this economic activity and the improvement in retail activity will strengthen the job market for both Wednesfield North residents and Wednesfield South residents.”
