WCN Editorial Team 30 Sep 2016 EUROPE BUILDINGS

Development partners U+I and Rioja Developments have secured planning consent for the development of a £110M outlet-shopping destination in Cannock, UK.

The 26,505sq m outlet village — named Mill Green Village — will be delivered in two phases and will offer up to 130 designer outlet stores.

The project will also feature new restaurants and around 2,000 car parking spaces within easy access to the M6 and M6 Toll road.

U+I deputy CEO Richard Upton said: “This is a major investment that could generate more than £500M of socio-economic improvements over the next ten years and create in excess of a thousand jobs, benefitting Cannock and the wider region and putting this outlet in the top five outlet centres nationally.

“We intend to create a unique experience in factory outlet retailing which will complement the beautiful environment, including a real focus on sustainability.”

Phase one of the development is set commence by autumn 2017, with an expected opening in spring 2019. The development will create more than 1,200 jobs in the region.
