Halls are favoured with instructions to offer this superb development opportunity for sale by private treaty.

The Development Site is extremely well situated, extending to approximately 4.35 acres, with Outline Planning Permission (subject to Section106), indicative site layout for 57 units, together with an interesting and substantial former station building (approx. 6,800 square feet gross) which has immense potential for an impressive conversion into multiple units, situated close to the centre of the North Shropshire lakeland town of Ellesmere.

The land is approached from Brownlow Road through an existing access leading to a level site with all services, we are informed, available on site.

The site has been predominantly cleared apart from the Grade II Listed former station building, which offers further potential for an individually designed conversion into potentially 8 additional units (subject to planning permission and Listed Building consent. An indicative plan showing 8 apartments is available for inspection, if required.

Properties on this interesting and particularly conveniently situated development will surely be sought after and Halls, the sole Selling Agents, have no hesitation, whatsoever, in recommending this first class development opportunity for an immediate inspection.

Situation - The land is situated off Brownlow Road within walking distance of the centre of the popular North Shropshire lakeland town of Ellesmere. Ellesmere has an excellent range of local shopping, recreational and educational facilities, and is within easy motoring distance of the larger centres of Oswestry (8 miles), Shewsbury (16 miles) and Chester (25 miles) all, of which, have a more comprehensive range of amenities of all kinds.

Directions - From Halls offices, in the centre of Ellesmere, with the offices on your left hand side, proceed through the town centre to the roundabout and take your first exit in the direction of Oswestry before turning, almost immediately, right in to Brownlow Road. Proceed to the top of Brownlow Road and, where the road bends around to the left, the development site will be situated on your right hand side identified by a Halls 'For Sale' board.

However, an indicative site layout included with the application shows a layout including 57 new units on the site (this excludes the former station building).

Planning application number 14/01744/OUT.

N.B. - The former station building itself and a sizeable area to the front do not form part of the application site.

Affordable Housing - The scheme will be required to contribute towards affordable housing in accordance with policy CS11 of the Adopted Core Strategy. The level of contribution would need to accord with the requirements of the SPD type and affordability of housing and the prevailing housing target rate at the time of reserved matters application.
