Lakeside, the Essex-based shopping scheme, is to undergo a £180m development, which will add 30 to 40 new shops and restaurants to the scheme. Owner Capital Shopping Centres (CSC) is initiating the investment, which it sai would allow it to introduce new brands and flagship sites. Domino’s Pizza, the delivery firm, is thought to be set to introduce a food court concept into the scheme. Paul Lancaster, general manager at Lakeside, said: “This £180m project is a major statement of our confidence in Lakeside and we hope it will further raise the profile of Thurrock for other businesses. This development will allow us to introduce new brands and widen our offer to customers.”
