In addition to the above, I've looked through the original app and found some comparisons, I know Sefton has posted at the top of the thread already, but thought to post these for those who don't/can't visit the shopping park.

Next phase of the redevelopment works at The Fort now online, encompassing from Clarks/Poundworld to Schuh/Moss.

Refurbishment of existing retail park to include installation of new shopfronts and canopies and associated works.

The documents pretty much confirm Sports Direct taking the former M&S unit too.

Looks good! The Next unit looks a bit awkward though, but I'd think Next could put in a separate app to be in line with some of their other newer stores like Tamworth and Merry Hill.

I guess they'll do the same with the other units, and then put the canopy up together.

A couple more apps have gone in

Including an interesting one of combination of 3 x units into one and inclusion of trolley bays at the front suggesting a supermarket perhaps??

Well looks like that confirms this is one of Debenhams sites that are closing, also the loss of Clarks too, Poundworld already gone.

I'm wondering who could have took such a big unit, surely wouldn't be M&S Food moving back in? Maybe The Food Warehouse?
