CHALLENGE

  • Arnold Clark Automobiles instructed the Automotive and Roadside Department to search for prominent sites suitable for their Motorstore concept or as a multi franchise vehicle dealership park. The requirement was for the Tyne and Wear area to compliment their existing representation in the area; the facility therefore, had to be large enough, prominent, have excellent communication links and accommodate a facility of this nature.

STRATEGY

  • Targeted mail shots to local agents, active developers and regional land owners utilising the local authorities.
  • Physical drive around of the highlighted opportunities.
  • Report to client detailing opportunities identified.
  • Agreeing detailed Heads of Terms with vendor’s agent.
  • Dealing with client’s professional consultants including structural engineer, environmental consultant, planning consultant and legal representative to provide a swift conclusion.

RESULTS

  • The site was acquired off market and currently Arnold Clark are considering their options relative to the proposed development.
  • A substantial development site which had a number of issues relative to contamination that needed complex and detailed negotiations.
