A parade of retail units forming part of the Beaumond Cross Retail Scheme. 

These are the last remaining units and are capable of accommodating a mezzanine to further increase the floor space. The units are finished off to a shell specification internally, ready to take a tenant shop fit, whilst externally the shop fronts have been installed by the Landlord.  
Full details on the units specification are available on request. This specification also contains information on the service capacity for the units.

Planning permission was secured in March 2017 for the development of a new Travelodge hotel on the adjacent former Robin Hood Hotel site.

EPC Rating: C56


The units are situated adjacent to the town’s Asda Superstore and bus station, in a prominent central location on the corner of Lombard Street and Portland Street. The town’s established prime retail pitch is located a short walk to the north and nearby retailers within the St Mark’s Retail  Scheme directly opposite the site include Marks and Spencer, Wilkos, Costa and Clarks Shoes.

Tenants within the scheme in addition to Asda now include Subway, Lloyds Pharmacy, Barnardo’s, Golf Addiction, Holdens and the main town centre doctors’ surgery – The Lombard Medical Centre.

Total 730 sq m  (7,835 sq ft)

* The size of each unit can be reconfigured to suit


Both units have an Open A1 Retail Consent under the Use Classes Order 1987 (as amended). 

Unit 3 was more recently utilised as a gym falling within Class D2 (Assembly and Leisure). 

Alternative uses falling within Classes A2 (Financial and Professional Services), A3 (Restaurant and Café) and D1 (Non-Residential Institutional and Medical Centres) are also considered appropriate subject to planning.
