“There has been a clear disregard to the fundamentals in some trade areas, with a significant amount of supply built and mooted which will exceed the natural saturation point. This will cause trading difficulties for the operators in these trade areas. However, this is not a reflection of the entire national landscape with many trade areas exhibiting a clear under-supply.“
