THE DEVELOPERS behind plans for a big money revamp of Elliott's Field have applied for planning permission.

Hammerson wants to rebuild the Leicester Road retail park by spending £35 million and bringing in Debenhams as the flagship store.

It has now submitted an application for planning permission for the work, which it says will 'benefit the whole of Rugby'.

Around 500 people attended an exhibition of the plans late last year, with around 150 giving their feedback on the scheme.

Their suggestions have led to alterations to the original scheme. There are now 20 extra car parking spaces proposed, along with a redistribution of bays for disabled drivers.

Improvements to bus services between the town and Elliott's Field are also being considered in order to make the park more accessible for those who do not drive.

Hammerson development manager, Tom Cochrane, said: "The redeveloped site could prevent the need for

many people to shop outside the borough and that will benefit the whole of Rugby.

"The overall response from the community has been very encouraging and as a result of its input we now

have a stronger scheme."

Rugby Borough Council planning bosses will meet to decide on the plans at a later date.

Contact Hammerson’s community helpline on 0800 5428 676 or e-mail elliottsfield@live.co.uk for more information.
