  • 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.

  • FSP provides 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

  • FSP is highly regarded in the sector and understands outlet centres from the ground up – just the independent view we needed. FSP’s research gave us confidence in completing the acquisition

  • FSP produced summary research to help market our scheme to retailers. It has been gold for our agents.
