Lookers has affirmed that it has no plans to close its Motherwell Taggarts Land Rover dealership after an AM-online report incorrectly stated that the site was being considered for redevelopment.
AM incorrectly reported in today’s newsletter (Tuesday, September 20) that fellow AM100 PLC Pendragon had entered a planning application that would see the Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) Arch concept showroom, located on Windmillhill Street, Motherwell, make way for a new Ford dealership.
We apologise for the mistake.
Pendragon’s application, submitted to North Lanarkshire Council, actually proposes the redevelopment of a former Nissan dealership on the opposite side of Windmillhill Street, which Lookers closed several years ago.
If successful, Pendragon’s plan is to move from its existing Ford dealership less than a quarter of a mile away on the same stretch of road.
It would also expansion the former Nissan site’s parking spaces from 150 to 246.
