Press Release Body: The new managing partners of Peak Village Outlet Shopping Centre have revealed that they have big plans for the centre and that visitors can look forward to an improved and more diverse visitor experience in the future. Whilst their exact development plans are at an early stage and must remain confidential for now, the more immediate aim for Peak Village is to maximise usage and enjoyment of the existing facilities, providing the most attractive destination possible for visitors and the local community.
Terence Morgan of Morgan and Company, of Belper, and Martin Langsdale of BB and J, of Derby, have recently been appointed joint agents of the Peak Village in Rowsley near Bakewell. The new joint marketing and managing partnership ultimately aims to bring the centre - which opened in 1999 and attracts 750,000 visitors a year - to the forefront of retailing in the region.
Terence and Martin both live locally and want to bring "a more sympathetic and personal touch to the management of the centre", which currently features established national retailers such as Cotton Traders, Mountain Warehouse and The Works.
"Peak Village already offers visitors a unique opportunity to combine shopping with nearby attractions, such as Chatsworth, in a superb outdoor environment" says Martin. "There is great potential for improvement and development of the facilities and the overall experience, with the potential of a significant increase in visitor numbers over time. We are now devising a plan that will help take Peak Village to the next level. Terrence and I are excited about creating a vibrant and busy shopping centre with excellent facilities".
One of the first tasks for the partnership is to work on a programme of events which will be attractive to visitors, the local community and retail tenants. Further details will be announced via the local media in due course. ENDS
Martin Langsdale is a partner in BB and J, the commercial arm of Boxall Brown Jones estate agents of Derbyborn in Nottingham, based in Derby since 1992.

Terrence Morgan is Director of Morgan and Company Ltd, in Belper which he founded in 1996. Following many years' service with the District Valuer\'s Office in South Yorkshire, Terry has a wealth of knowledge and experience in the commercial property sector.
