Retail scheme

Trinity Walk is 500,000 sq ft partially enclosed shopping centre with over 55 stores and 1000 car parking spaces, with access from Wakefield’s inner city ring road (A61) and the main bus station. The centre contains major stores, including an 8,500 m² Sainsbury's and a 9,000 m² Debenhams, and retailers Next, New Look, Top Man Topshop and H&M and Pandora.

The centre recorded its record year for footfall in 2015 with around 11.22 million shopping visits, up 4% on 2014. It also saw its busiest ever week in December 2015 after welcoming around 289,000 shoppers.[2]

History

On 19 March 2009, it appeared that the development was going to fall victim to the credit crunch when KPMG were called in as administrators[3] as the Anglo Irish Bank withdrew its support for the project.[4] Building work stopped and the steel structure stood half finished.

The scheme was rescued in early 2010 by a consortium who bought the development from administrators - a joint venture company comprising Sovereign Land, AREA Property Partners, and Shepherd Building Group.[5]

Trinity Walk opened on Friday 6 May 2011.

Wakefield Regeneration

Trinity Walk has created hundreds of new jobs in the city.[6]

Shepherd Building Group

The Shepherd Building Group Ltd. (trading name Shepherd Group) was one of the largest privately owned construction groups in the UK, but restructured in 2015 to focus on its Portakabin portable buildings businesses.

The Shepherd Group's history can be traced to 1890 when Frederick Shepherd set up a successful building business in York. Growth, through innovation by several generations of the Shepherd family, by acquisition and through geographical expansion, led to the formation of Shepherd Building Group in 1962.

Wakefield

Wakefield is a cathedral city in West Yorkshire, England, on the River Calder and the eastern edge of the Pennines, which had a population of 99,251 at the 2011 census.The Battle of Wakefield took place in the Wars of the Roses and it was a Royalist stronghold in the Civil War. Wakefield became an important market town and centre for wool, exploiting its position on the navigable River Calder to become an inland port.

In the 18th century, Wakefield traded in corn, coal mining and textiles and in 1888 its parish church acquired cathedral status. It became the county town of the West Riding of Yorkshire and was the seat of the West Riding County Council from 1889 until 1974, when the county and council were abolished, and of the West Yorkshire Metropolitan County Council from 1974 until its dissolution in 1986.

Woolwich

Woolwich () is a district of south-east London, England, within the Royal Borough of Greenwich. It has been part of the London metropolitan area since the 19th century. In 1965, most of the former Metropolitan Borough of Woolwich became part of Greenwich Borough, of which it remains the administrative centre.

The town is a river crossing point, with the Woolwich Ferry and the Woolwich foot tunnel crossing to North Woolwich in the London Docklands. Throughout the 17th, 18th, 19th and most of the 20th century, Woolwich was an important naval, military and industrial town. After several decades of economic hardship and social deprivation, large-scale urban renewal projects have turned its fortunes around. It is expected that the town, identified in the London Plan as "opportunity area", will evolve from "major centre" to "metropolitan centre" within Greater London in the next few decades.
