A property owner in Pwllheli had owned a store just off the main shopping zone for many years. He now wanted to revert to a retail use and contacted Owen Devenport to submit and manage the planning application. A rigorous assessment of the LPA's retail policies identified that this form of development should be encouraged in the Town Centre. Indeed, this proved to be the case and planning permission was granted for the change of use back into a shop and so Pwllheli town centre will shortly have an addition to its retail offering.
