Rightway submits plans for Pendle superstore

A 16,000 sq ft retail unit could be built in Brierfield, as the DIY supplier plans to more than double its footprint off Burnley Road.

ANW Architects has designed the project, which proposes the demolition of the existing 6,000 sq ft Rightway DIY Store on site to be replaced with a larger 16,000 sq ft superstore.  

The superstore would be built on the vacant brownfield behind the older shop, formerly a school and presbytery.

The project would deliver 43 car parking spaces, including four disabled bays and five designated staff bays. There would also be 10 bicycle spaces. 

The project team includes transport consultant TPS. PEAK Acoustics is advising on noise impact, while UK Flood Risk is providing flood risk and SuDS assessments.

Rightway currently operates three facilities across Brierfield, including the one to be demolished.

Pendle Council’s reference number for the application is 22/0641/FUL.

The design of this proposed store is a lot more attractive and modern looking than a number of the stores I`ve seen.
The one in West Kirby is very cramped internally, while the fairly new one in Hoylake could have smarter signage and what was previously a bank cash-point could have been removed.
Nevertheless these stores are well stocked and the staff helpful.
