Smiemans/Malcolm Scott are planning to work on Mackenzie & Cruickshank Home & Garden Centre in Forres and Groves Garden Centre in Bridport (Vear is the builder). Fairways in Derbyshire has plans to develop a derelict nursery at a date to be confirmed. Knights in Chelsham has plans for its restaurant and Hillier Newbury will be redesigned with Newspan structures.
Several independents are developing their catering offer with Fron Goch, Knights Nags Hall and Ashtead Park developing restaurants with Pleydell Smithyman and centres such as Monkton Elm, Trelawney Probus and St John's are also planning to develop.
Rushden Lakes LXB development has yet to find a garden centre tenant. Van Hage's planned redevelopment with Waitrose in Ware has been withdrawn after East Herts Council recommended refusal. Van Hage intends to submit revised plans.
