Perrywood plan for major re-development at Sudbury
Award winning Perrywood Garden Centres are planning a major re-development of their Sudbury site which they purchased from Wyevale two years ago.
Perrywood’s mission is to offer a memorable garden centre experience, delivering wow customer service and giving employees, customers and the community a reason to smile. The current garden centre building isn’t the high standard their customers and team would expect so they are planning to invest in this site and build an inspirational garden centre surrounded by plants and trees, that will grow with our business.
In line with their vision and values our brand new centre, at Perrywood Sudbury, will:
Be a modern purpose built garden centre, where they can look after our customers and inspire more people to bring plants into their lives.
Improve the site to be the best that it can be with a fabulous range of facilities including a new restaurant.
Create a space where their team enjoy coming to work, with new job opportunities for local people.
Put Perrywood Sudbury at the heart of the of the local community with event spaces, wildlife areas and leisure opportunities for local people to enjoy.
Teach visitors about and protect the sites flora, fauna and wildlife.
Subject to planning permission they will be be moving forward with an investment in Perrywood Sudbury, building a stunning new Garden Centre in a landscaped environment. The overall site is larger than at Tiptree, but the garden centre plans are a similar size to Tiptree. As a family run business they are looking forward to growing Perrywood Sudbury to create a special place among the plants, that customers, our team and local people will enjoy.
Hannah Powell told GTN Xtra: “Our biggest expansions at Perrywood Tiptree have taken place on the back of harder times; in 1988 we rebuilt and expanded after the Great Storm of 1987 and in 2010, following a recession, we opened our newest retail buildings. We are equally optimistic about the future for Perrywood Sudbury, and look forward to bringing the site back to life. The plans build on our experiences at Tiptree and we’ve enjoyed planning the garden centre from scratch, whilst also working to maintain the heritage and history of the site.”
