RPS CgMs are Boots UK Limited’s retained planning consultants.

We provide assistance to Boots as part of the ongoing management and improvement of its large town centre store portfolio. Key elements of this work are set out below:

Providing planning assistance in the implementation of Boots in-store GP, Dentistry, Chiropody, and LASIK services. This has involved obtaining planning permission for necessary changes of use within its existing stores to accommodate these non-A1 uses where the Local Planning Authority has not accepted them as ancillary uses.

Providing strategic advice on Boots new brand format as well as obtaining advertisement consent for revised signage as part of ongoing Boots rebranding programme. RPS CgMs has also provided strategy advice on problematic sites, negotiating with the Local Planning Authority to achieve consent, and where necessary, achieving consent via appeal.
