New Homebase store to open in Bromsgrove’s Brook Retail Park

WORK to transform a derelict site into a new retail park, bringing two major retail chains to the town, is underway.

DIY chain Homebase and Pets at Home are taking up leases on the new multi-million pound Brook Retail Park, developers Chase Commercial has announced.

The park is being built on a four acre site in Sherwood Road, where the Barpro factory was positioned before closing several years ago.

The site includes the 25,000 square foot and 9,000 square foot retail units, and a 161 space car park.

An artist’s impression has also been released of how the site will look when the retailers begin trading, which is expected to be in spring 2014.

The area is currently being cleared, with the focus being on improving the quality and appearance of the brook. A programme of environmental improvements and landscaping is also to be carried out.
Becky Yates, from Chase Commercial, said: “The contractor (Anglo Holt Construction) is now on site.

“The scheme will mark a major improvement to this area which has been blighted by this empty factory and surrounding land.

“From an ecological point of view, there has been a tremendous amount of work done in conjunction with the Environment Agency.

"The development will transform this prominent location for the benefit of the local community."
