10,000 sq ft of new lettings at Friars Walk have brought Queensberry’s retail and leisure development in Newport to 85% let, with less than five weeks to go before it opens on 12 November. Retailers Jack and Jones, Tiger and The Body Shop, have signed up joining Next, H&M, Top Shop, New Look and River Island, plus a 95,000 sq ft Debenhams store.

The restaurant section is now fully let with Wagamama taking space alongside Prezzo and GBK. Huw Thomas, Director of Retail and joint retail agent on the scheme with Lunson Mitchenall and Nick Young & Co, said “Friars Walk is going to make a big difference to Newport's fortunes and there is huge anticipation building ahead of the launch date.”

Cooke & Arkwright have been providing Newport City Council with rating advice for over 20 years. Andrew, Jane and Huw provide a personal and professional service and have an excellent knowledge of the Council’s assets which has enabled the Council to achieve substantial rate savings. A useful service offered is the status report which provides us with a snapshot of what appeals have been made and appeals outstanding throughout the life of the List. I would recommend Cooke & Arkwright Rating Services to any company wishing to procure up-to-date and professional rating advice.
