Commercial Development

Moult Walker spent several years assembling this multi-ownership site in St Albans city centre via a nominee company for Tesco Stores. This initially involved a print factory and then numerous smaller properties and a cinema.  Tesco losts its planning battle for a retail superstore and the scheme was shelved and replaced with a townhouse scheme for 100 homes which was finally developed after a further planning battle.

We acquired the Nursery Trades site in Cheshunt for a developer and initially promoted this for a retail foodstore. We then sold the site to Tesco Stores and were retained to secure a residential planning permission. Moult Walker sold the housing site to Bovis Homes which included a retirement home and associated medical centre. We acted as project manager for the construction of the medical scheme.

Moult Walker were appointed as Agent and Planner by North Hertfordshire College for the Stevenage Centre. We submitted a planning application for a retail superstore and new College. This was called-in and embroilled in a 4 week public inquiry including three other retail parks in the town. Permission was granted and Moult Walker advertised and sold the land to Asda Stores which funded a new College.

Similarly, we acted for North Hertfordshire College as Agent on their Letchworth Centre. Having applied for planning for a retail superstore (which included a controversial petrol station), we secured planning on appeal and sold this to Morrisons. This included a joint scheme to incorporate the neighbouring Council's building and secured approval of the Garden City Foundation.

We acted as joint Agent and Development Co-ordinator on the strategic employment site at Park Plaza, Waltham Cross. Having secured a Green Belt release and Local Plan allocation, we secured planning permission (including a contentious new A10 trunk road access). The scheme was then advertised and confidentially sold to News International for their new printing facility to replace the Wapping facility. 


Rochester Square, Camden was owned by our client for Roehyde, Welwyn and Iver. The London Squares Act restricted any development (above ground) apart from horticulture and the derelict glasshouses were home to a well-established commune of squatters. The overgrown property had Japanese Knotweed and the planning authority were taking enforcement action. Despite all this, we secured a good sale.
