A large Charles Hurst car showroom on Boucher Road has gone on the market as the car dealer seeks to relocate its Vauxhall brand.

Charles Hurst, which is part of Lookers plc, said the sale of the 1.2-acre site and 13,000 sq ft showroom on 27 Boucher Road is not related to Vauxhall owner PSA Group's plans to cull some showrooms.

A spokesman for Charles Hurst Group said the sale will instead see Vauxhall relocate to another same-sized site within the retail complex. "The decision to sell the site is part of a continual review of our entire estate portfolio which is designed to optimise space so that we achieve the best results for our dealerships, staff and customers," he said.
