JF & E Hadwin submits plans for new South Lakes Land Rover dealership

The all-new Land Rover Defender 110 4x4

JF & E Hadwin has submitted a planning application to convert an existing workshop building into a new Land Rover premium car dealership for the South Lakes area.

The Mail newspaper reported this week that Land Rover dealer of the year 2020 JF & E Hadwin had submitted plans to South Lakeland District Council for the proposed new business, near Ulverston.

Its submission details the conversion and extension of an existing workshop on the Crakeside Business Park, in Greenodd, to create a new facility that would replace the group’s existing Lakeland Land Rover dealership in nearby Torver.

The dealership would comply to Jaguar Land Rover’s (JLR) current Arch Concept corporate identity.

Planning documents state: “Jaguar Land Rover have identified key locations throughout the UK to provide their new identity which will provide customers with modern premises better suited to the needs of customers.

“The new corporate identity has been designed in a modular nature to allow it to be rolled out throughout the world."

AM reported back in February that JF & E Hadwin’s Settle Land Rover dealership pipped Duckworth Motor Group’s Market Rasen operation and Roger Young Plymouth to the Land Rover dealer of the year title for 2020.

Land Rover franchisees helped the OEM to 58,505 registrations in a COVID-impacted 2020, down 23.6% on 2019’s 76,546 as the new Defender 4x4 reached showrooms.

Year-to-date to the end of May, Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) data showed that Land Rover’s registrations had risen 54.87% to 32,419 (2020: 20,933) in a market up 4.25% overall, at 723,845 (2020: 508,125).
