Gloucester Evans Halshaw centre gets go-ahead

Plans for Gloucester Evans Halshaw centre

Pendragon has been granted planning permission for a new 255-vehicle Evans Halshaw used car centre at Barnwood, Gloucester.

Officials from Gloucester City Council gave the facility the green light with a unanimous decision at a recent planning board meeting, the Gloucestershire Citizen reported.

The business will create 35 full- and part-time jobs, according to plans, with opening hours from 8.45am to 7pm throughout the week and weekend.

Councillor Kathy Williams said: “When you travel to Gloucester by train the approach can be really grim. If they can do anything to improve that area, it would be great.”

The materials planned for the centre will be grey modern composite cladding panels as well as blue and aluminium framed glazing.

A red brick building currently on the long-abandoned land will be demolished as part of the proposal.

Evans Halshaw’s Kate Hobson told the Gloucestershire Citizen: “The project will see significant investment in the location to provide customers with greater choice and an enhanced buying experience in a state of the art retail environment.”
