LONDON-Australian shopping centre investor Westfield Shoppingtowns has won a resolution to grant outline planning consent for its £200 million ($310 million) redevelopment of the Eagle Centre, Derby. But because of its size the application has to be ratified by Deputy Prime Minister John Prescott before the scheme can proceed.

The extension and redevelopment of the existing centre will add a flagship department store and over 150 shops and restaurants. On completion, the Eagle Centre will have increased from 275,000 sf to more than 900,000 sf.

Westfield Managing Director Steven Lowy said: ” This outline planning consent for Eagle Centre is a first, but significant, step in achieving our redevelopment objectives. Westfield has operated the centre for just under two years and since then has been working closely with the authorities on our application and we are delighted to receive approval in this time frame,”

Westfield has also lodged planning applications for the redevelopment and expansion of four other shopping centres in the UK at Nottingham, Guildford, Swindon and Belfast.
