Unlocking much-needed employment land, our team gained planning permission for a brand new two-storey bespoke Porsche car showroom and workshop.
Replacing the Porsche Centre in Kendal the new purpose-built two storey centre, located on land north of Kellet Road in Carnforth provides a brand new car showroom in a highly accessible location. Visible from the M6 motorway, the new Porsche Centre will serve a wide catchment across the North of England and south Scotland. The locational advantage will enable better access to its customer base and the provision of modern service facilities, including a super-charging point for the next generation of electric powered performance vehicles.
The new showroom and workshop at Carnforth will also create new job opportunities while at the same time boost the local economy, allowing Parker & Parker to advance its programme of apprenticeships and qualified technicians.
Dan Mitchell, Partner said: “The granting of planning permission and unlocking of much-needed employment land for the new purpose-built facility for Parker & Parker at Carnforth will see an injection of around £16 million of GVA a year in to the local economy.
“There will also be an increase in the number of people working at the Centre once construction is completed bringing the total number of full-time equivalent roles to 25, which is a 56% increase.”
