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.

  • We needed a clear understanding of the prioritised location opportunities for Acuitis to assist leasing negotiations and management planning. It was important for us to understand, in detail, which towns and cities offered potential for Acuitis and what levels of turnover might be expected. FSP delivered everything we needed and provided useful tools for us to review and adjust our thinking as the roll-out progresses.

  • 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
