Development Opportunity For Sale by Private Treaty Previously benefitting from detailed planning permission for 8 linked mews houses (now expired) Close to Worcester City Centre Views towards the Cathedral Freehold with vacant possession
The site lies immediately adjacent to the Bromwich Road (A449) to the south-west of Worcester city centre. Access is currently directly off Bromwich Road although future development access is likely to be off Bromwich Lane which connects via the A44 St Johns Road to the west. The site is within easy walking distance of the city centre and is close to the New Road Cricket Ground.
The site is as shown edged red on the attached plan and extends to 0.59 acres (0.24 hectares). The site was formerly a petrol filling station and the buildings on site are now occupied by a car hire company as more particularly described below. To the west of the site (on the other side of Bromwich Lane) are residential dwellings and to the east (the other side of Bromwich Road) is the King's School playing fields.
The site was formerly used as a petrol filing station and, as such, underground tanks will need to be removed prior to the commencement of development.
The guide price assumes that this cost will be borne by the purchaser. Copy reports are available within information packs.
The site previously benefitted from a detailed planning permission for the residential development of 8 linked mews houses dated 25 February 2009 (following an Appeal) reference P08C0689.
It is anticipated that prospective purchasers may consider a fresh application on a slightly amended scheme and the original architect's have prepared suggested plans which demonstrate the potential configuration for a viable scheme. Prospective purchasers are however recommended to make their own enquiries of the Worcester City Council Planning Department.
