Great Spaces: Northmoor Retail Units


Great Spaces Northmoor retail spaces are part of an iconic, Grade II listed building in the heart of Northmoor. The building has three retail units, 19 residential apartments, and the much-loved Northmoor Community Centre. 

The building has recently been refurbished in order to restore most of the stunning original features of the space. The refurbishment took around six months, seeing significant improvements made to the shops.



What do we want to see in the building?

We’re open to suggestions! We want to hear what you think would benefit the local community, and what you can bring to the table. We do however have some criteria that will help us review any ideas submitted:

Benefits the Northmoor Community

This could be through creating new jobs, new services that meet a current or future need, using spaces in ways that inspire the local community.  We will consider supporting ideas that deliver a strong benefit to the area by, for example, asking for less than the guide price for the space, this will be decided on a case by case basis.

Supported by a sustainable business plan

Is your idea deliverable? We want to be sure the retail units will be well used, and your proposition can generate sufficient funding to sustain it in the future. 

Challenge the parameters!

You will need to have a clear idea of what you want to do in the space and be able to fund it yourself.  You may want to propose a straight-forward rental agreement with us, or something more original. Feel free to challenge the parameters too – we’re open to all ideas!  All proposals are subject to surveys, feasibility and contracts – at this stage we just want the bones of a plan, using the simple form found here
