Lipscomb Volvo Canterbury has opened, three months later than originally planned. The £5m year-long development involved constructing a new junction on the A28 and an upgraded electric mains connection. “We had to jump through countless hoops with the city council and Kent Highways” said MD Peter Barnes. Boasting a bigger car showroom and workshop, the new franchised dealership has been built on land next to an existing Lipscomb site.

Anca Motor Group has added a second Suzuki dealership to its portfolio. Mark Davis, director at the Worthing-based car retail group, announced the opening of the new franchise on Stoney Lane, Shoreham. The new car showroom has been created following a conversion of the group’s former Honda dealership at the site and marks its departure from the brand as a new car retailer.

Mark Davis, director, said: “We are pleased to announce the addition of Brighton Suzuki at our Shoreham Branch. We will also continue to as a Honda Approved Service Centre with the same great staff and service.”
