A cosmetics and beauty brand has made a planning application for a potential new store in a North East retail and leisure park.

Lush have lodged a planning application for Unit 19B at Teesside Park, in half of a unit previously occupied by Mamas and Papas.

The plans involve advertisement consent for two internally illuminated fascia signs, and one non-illuminated fascia sign and another non-illuminated protecting sign.

Previous occupiers Mamas and Papas moved out of its old unit at Teesside Park in late February.

This comes after plans by food giant Wagamama were submitted on Stockton Borough Council's website to display advertisements on Unit 19A.

It comes after plans for the park, drawn up by owner British Land, revealed that Sports Direct was set to take over units 8A, 8B, and 9A, which includes the former Laura Ashley, USC, MenKind, and the former Argos site, which would become a 'super unit'.

Sports Direct's new home will be 40,000sq ft when it opens in 2024 featuring both a GAME and Evans Cycles. 

Flannels has already been confirmed as the retailer moving into the current 20,000 sq ft Sports Direct unit, and will fully refurbish the unit before opening to the public.
