• Manchester City Council have worked with FSP over the last year to understand the City Centre's shopper audience, who they are where they come from, how the profile evolves throughout the year and how we can attract more shoppers to Manchester. The depth of understanding that FSP have provided in terms of Manchester's catchment has helped inform our marketing, regeneration and growth strategies for the City Centre. Their consultative approach really got to the heart of the issues involved in a complex area and helped to facilitate partnership working across different Council departments and external stakeholders. I look forward to continue our working relationship with them in the future. Peter Richards, Insight & Planning Manager, Corporate Communications, Manchester City Council.

  • FSP information and face-to-face presentations have been instrumental in getting retailers to consider schemes which they would not otherwise have done and this has been successfully converted into lettings which would not have happened in a number of instances.

  • Much retail planning focuses on 'capacity' and floor space issues. What FSP do 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

  • Many thanks indeed for turning this around in the tight timeframe we required. It is an interesting read and has the balance and lack of bias that I have come to expect from FSP, which gives us an objective 3rd party view that we can now use in our decision making. I also appreciate the clarity of the report.

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