Planners asked to approve change to Westfield's Broadway shopping centre

The proposed alteration to Eastbrook Mall

The Eastbrook Mall entrance in the original plan

First published in News

Work on Westfield's new Broadway shopping centre might well be under way, but planners are now being asked to consider a change to the scheme.

The developer wants to extend the length of its covered 'Eastbrook Mall' walkway, by moving a glazed entrance further out.

The change would not add any more shops but would mean that more of the shopping centre would be under a glass covering.

In its application, Westfield said the change was being sought "to meet the prospective tenant requirements".

A spokesman for Westfield said: "It's a variation on the existing planning approval to move the entrance doors to accommodate a potential new retailer."

But the firm is staying tight-lipped about who the potential new retailer is.

Retailers already signed up to take on units at the £260 million shopping centre include Debenhams, Marks & Spencer, Next, River Island, Top Shop and Top Man, Burger King, KFC and Hey Potato.

The centre is due to open by December 2015.

The latest planning application will be considered by planners over the coming months, once members of the public have had a chance to make any comments.

Another retrospective change about to be waived through by our planners. Doesn't anybody in Bradford get it right first time?

A development this size is bound to have amendments, it's not exactly retrospective as it hasn't been built yet.

I can't see the problem myself, the update looks better to me.

Good change could never understand why it was to be 2 separate blocks and not one shopping center as other cities.

How is it retrospective? It hasn't been done yet. Retrospective means that the change has been done and they are now looking for permission which is not the case here.

Some people are just clueless

Can you do any better? If so get a job as a planning officer.

I was waiting for the negatives to begin.

Just wait until it's opened and then the doomsayers can complain about the colour of the carpets or choice of hanging baskets.

Because some people don't need any encouragement to start whingeing.

Sounds like a good idea, it's hardly a major alteration and if it helps the prospective tenant, great. Pretty impressed with the pace of work being done regarding the Westfield Broadway development, add to this the great possibility that the Odeon building is going to be regenerated and with other schemes either nearing completion or about to start, things are certainly buzzing in Bradford City Centre at the minute. Well done to all involved!!!!!
