Monks Cross Permission Granted

Walton & Co have recently advised Oakgate Monks Cross Ltd in successfully gaining planning permission for a major out of town retail development at Monks Cross, York.  The development comprises a John Lewis store, major Marks and Spencer store and Next store with a combined floor area of over 300,000 sq ft.  David Walton and James Cook of Walton & Co both worked on the project for over 2 years.  The application was accompanied by a full Environmental  Impact Assessment.

Walton & Co led the team in both negotiation and drafting of the Section 106 Planning Agreement which also formed part of the application.  This secured a £17m contribution to the Monks Cross Stadium re-development and substantial contributions to travel plan and off site highway works in the region of £2m.
