• 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.

  • I must thank you for doing an excellent piece of work. It gives a very clear direction supported by persuasive evidence. We propose to bring forward some of the early recommendations for Council action.

  • We wanted to confirm the growth opportunity that we believed to exist at DOS. FSP is highly regarded in the sector and understands outlet centres from the ground up – just the independent view we needed. FSP’s research confirmed the scale of untapped potential at DOS and gave us confidence in completing the acquisition. Having purchased DOS, we are now actively engaged in delivering the full potential of this exciting investment.

  • We have worked closely with FSP to understand the scale and nature of the opportunity to make better use of available space at Leeds Beckett University. FSP carried out a programme of research and consultancy which involved talking in detail with staff, students and members of the public, via a series of focus groups and surveys, following which they quantified the opportunity and presented recommendations for food and beverage as well as other retail uses. The University is now in the process of implementing these recommendations and will be continuing to work with FSP through this next stage of development. We have found their attention to detail, analytical skills and creative solutions exactly what we needed to help take this project forward.

  • FSP's retail experience has given us knowledge of the trading potential of new sites, while their clear advice on local market strategy has had a direct impact on our approach.
