Intu outlines enhanced safety measures ahead of ‘gradual’ reopening

Intu Victoria Centre

Intu has outlined new social distancing and hygiene procedures for non-essential retail store occupiers as it eyes a “gradual” reopening of its shopping centres.

The landlord said it had drawn up plans for each of its 14 shopping centres in the UK to “keep everyone who visits or works there safe” and established a task force across the business to set out “central, common principles across the portfolio”.

Plans include placing limits on the number of people and cars allowed into a centre at any one time by closing some parking bays, introducing one-way systems, floor stickers and increased staff training to enforce social distancing measures.
