Impact Studies are used to inform decisions to add additional space and to identify the effect of change on the existing retail offer.

FSP impact studies are more reliable than computer-generated, theoretical models. FSP impact studies are based on actual shopping patterns, as reported by over a million shoppers a year. Results are sense-checked and interpreted within the context of experience of how people shop and how retailers make their investment decisions.

Reliable, well-founded research is essential to investigate opportunities for asset expansion and to present evidence against competing developments.

FSP’s service has proved of value to clients as diverse as small centre managers to the largest retail expansions in the country.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • I am very pleased to have given the approval to the research as this really does appear to me to be money well spent.

  • 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 provided their usual robust research to assess the potential at Banbury Cross Retail Park. The results helped us define the asset management, leasing and marketing strategy for the Park
