• In the current very difficult current economic conditions we are finding that traditional retail planning studies drawing on household surveys, estimates of development potential and health checks are insufficient to inform a robust and realistic strategy to sustain and enhance town centre vitality and viability. I have no hesitation in recommending FSP in providing a very knowledgeable commercial perspective in this challenging area of work.

    Tim Brown|Chief Planning Officer, Blackpool Council

  • As always with FSP, a well researched, high quality project

    Richard Wassell|Twenty Retail

  • We needed a clear understanding of St. Enoch’s retail performance as well as an overview of both the macro and micro issues influencing shopper behaviours in Glasgow. Accuracy, speed and depth of detail were paramount and we knew FSP was the team to deliver this. FSP’s detailed research helped us to fully assess the opportunity from an investment perspective

  • Much retail planning focuses on 'capacity' and floor space issues. What FSP does is to provide a commercial 'reality check' of 'demand' based on actual market analysis and the socio-economic composition of the catchment which then needs to be considered alongside 'theoretical' capacity figures. This provides an added dimension when considering and understanding development proposals and one that tends to be overlooked by many planning and property professionals.

    Adrian Swift|Principal Planner, Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council

  • FSP has very helpfully set out the trading risks and opportunities in this investment opportunity.
