Swindon based dealer group Dick Lovett has acquired a four acre site which will be the home to a planned Jaguar Land Rover dealership at Hampton Park West, south of Melksham in Wiltshire.
The 54,000 square foot dealership which will employ 150 staff will commence construction later this year.
The new dealership will have an 18 new car showroom and an eight car used car showroom, workshop, offices, a state of the art sales and aftersales suite with a lounge and a barista bar as well as a children’s play area.
Talking about the deal, Martin Baker, senior surveyor at Alder King who acted for land owners Ashvale said, “In a market with limited availability, this site was notable for its prominent location and superb road frontage. It will make an excellent prestige dealership for Dick Lovett and a new gateway building for Melksham.
“The successful disposal of this site, the strong take-up at the adjacent Ashville Centre and the news that the final plot on the Park is the subject of a planning application for a new Travelodge, Greggs and Starbucks is proof that Hampton Park West is fulfilling its potential as one of Wiltshire’s most successful and thriving business locations.”
Spencer Crowder, development director at Ashville, added, “We are delighted to have concluded this transaction with Dick Lovett and are proud to be working on the final phase at The Ashville Centre, bringing the scheme to a successful conclusion. We can now turn our attention to new acquisitions in 2017.”
