Company behind car dealership expansion says it is “delighted” planning permission was granted for people living in or visiting the wrexham area

The company behind plans to extend the car park at Wrexham car dealership has said it is “delighted with Wrexham Council’s decision to grant planning permission” for the development.

An application for the Lindop Toyota site in Bradley was backed by a majority of planning committee members at a meeting last Monday.

The proposals include extending the car park area to cater for an increase in electric vehicle sales and install charging points.

Although the plans had been recommended for refusal twice by the council’s head of planning amid concerns the development would have an impact on the green barrier space.

However councillors went against their advice after business owner Steve Hopewell previously warned it was likely to result in the firm closing, resulting in the loss of 30 jobs.

The company has now said it has “recognised the responsibilities which go alongside a development of this nature and will deliver an outcome which will be beneficial to all interested parties.”

A spokesperson for the company said: “The team at Lindop Toyota are delighted with Wrexham Council’s decision to grant planning permission for a car park extension at their Toyota dealership in Bradley.

“The business thanked the councillors who supported the proposal for their support and their pragmatic approach to the application.

“Lindop Toyota now looks forward to continuing the development of their business in partnership with the local community and Toyota (GB) secure in the knowledge that they can invest with confidence over the long term, creating secure jobs, and delivering outstanding service to existing and prospective customers.”
