FSP understands retailers and retail environments, be they shopping centres, retail parks, outlet centres or high streets. Our experience covers in and out-of-town; full-price and outlet; UK and Europe.  Outside of the traditional shopping environments, we can provide information and recommendations on any commercial spaces where retail and F&B exist or are anticipated e.g. universities, garden centres, hospitals and station concourses. 


  • 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.

  • 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.

  • FSP has helped us to identify the core customer at our retail park assets and also provided targeted research support during on-going leasing discussions

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

  • We needed a clear understanding of Blanchardstown’s catchment opportunities as well as an overview of shopper behaviour and insight into the effect of future retail developments. Accuracy, speed and depth of detail were paramount and we are pleased to say that the FSP team delivered exactly what we wanted.
