Colton Retail Park off Selby Road
2000. View of Colton Retail Park which occupies a 12 acre site off Selby Road. The development includes a Sainsburys Superstore, a petrol station, shop units and a car park. It was built at a cost of £15M and opened in November 1994

User Comments:


Another example of a retail park with a single entrance & exit. The queues trying to get out can be horrendous. Brilliant bit of planning!

An excellent comment by C.J.Davis. Yes, it is brilliant planning - - - FOR THE RATAIL PARK. You can imagine a planner sat in front of an outline plan of a car-park, and wondering how he can maximise the number of parking spaces. - - - EUREKA!!! - - - Utilise one opening only, for both entrance and exit. In one's mind's eye you can almost see him or her excitedly sketching the number of extra cars that could be fitted in. Not only that:- There is the 'psychological aspect'. - - - The congestion created would make the place look busier than it might be; thus encouraging more people to be attracted and encouraged to go in. After all - - - The more cars in the car-park, the more money goes into the ever greedy mouths of the tills.
