Powerhub Maidstone

Powerhub, Maidstone

The Powerhub building, approximately 300 metres from Maidstone’s core shopping area, lay largely vacant and in a state of disrepair when members of our team were instructed to submit a planning application for its change of use. Constructed originally as a motor vehicle factory, the hybrid planning application sought permission for Class A1 retail, Class A2 financial services, Class A3 food and drink, Class B1 Employment and Class D2 leisure uses. The scheme included a large foodstore (c.7,430 sq m GIA). Submission included the preparation of the planning application, listed building application, and Supporting Retail Statement.
