Changes proposed for former Gap store

The owner of the former Gap store in Cheltenham has applied to make changes to the Grade II listed building.

The large retail unit at 106 Promenade has been vacant since Gap left in March 2020. Owner Cheltine Ltd has been unable to find new tenants since then.

Now a new occupier is keen to move in but would like changes to the site. Cheltine has applied to Cheltenham Borough Council to make substantial changes to the building.

In a report to the council, Inchbald Day Planning and Development Ltd states: "A new retail/ commercial occupier has now been identified for the front of the building at ground and first floor level. The tenants which to take possession of the building in January 2023 and to achieve this, Cheltine, as landlords, are required to undertake some internal works."

The report continues: "Sadly, 106 has been empty since the end of the Gap tenancy in March 2020. It appears that the upper floors were unused by Gap and have been vacant for some considerable time. Due to its size, configuration, and likely cost of refurbishment, 106 has proved unattractive to potential new tenants. The scheme proposes the subdivision of 106 to secure the tenant."
