Lookers have shifted their buisness to the exsisting showrooms in Woodchurch Road and Ellesmere Port, according to the notice in the window.
They have recently had outline planning permission passed for their property in Urmston Road. This is NOT the plot of land where they have just vacated, but the former Tire Services building adjoining the exsisting terraced houses in Urmston Road (opposite the service bays). It's been disused for years.
The planning permission is for four three-bedroomed teraced houses with private gardens and parking. Not a lot of room inside as the front room has the front door and staircase in it.
However, this could just be a ploy to increase the value of the land, as land with planning permission is worth more - and Lookers don't seem to be in the housing market.
