HENDY GROUP has submitted plans for a new dealership in Dorset, which would serve as their only site in the south coast county if approved.
The site plans, which are mooted to create space for 200 cars, would see a new dealership built on the A31, in the small village of St Leonards, Dorset, which is a 20 minute drive from Bournemouth.
A statement submitted as part of the applications states that the new dealership will be ‘a second-hand car sales centre’, implying that the site will not operate under the umbrella of a specific marque.
The plans feature a large showroom and sales suite, with space for a 224 car inventory. Dedicated parking for customers and staff are also planned, as well as a valeting building.
The new dealership would provide 20 full-time jobs.
Mark Busby, commercial director at Hendy, told the Bournemouth Echo: ‘Dorset is a place we know and love, with a number of our employees hailing from the county.’
‘We’re hoping to bring our services to the area as part of our commitment to growing our business across the south.’
