Fron Goch Garden Centre near Caenarfon is set to enhance its retail experience with a £1.7 million extension to showcase its strong plant offering.
Fron Goch Garden Centre is keen to capitalise on its success as being named the top centre in Britain at the UK Garden Association Awards 2020, and has worked closely with sector specialists Malcolm Scott Consultants to develop and implement a five-year plan to grow the business.
Further to drawing up a series of proposals for the centre, Malcolm Scott Consultants secured approvals for a range of extensions at the site, aimed at protecting and extending the range of plants on offer, and to support with customer flow so customers could go directly to them.
MSC proposed a lightweight glasshouse to cover more of the centre’s open plant sales area, and suggested a revised entrance system to draw customers directly into the planteria.
As such, the business submitted plans for a heated shop extension and a new canopy entrance at the site, to draw customers into a new glasshouse which will form the centre’s new plant market. The business also requested permission for an overflow car park at the site consisting of 53 spaces, with Gwynedd Council giving all plans the green light.
