Full description

Location

The former Oswestry Magistrates Court and Council Offices are located with access and twin frontages onto Holbache Road to the north and Oswald Place to the south. The site is positioned centrally and is located approximately 350m to the south west of Oswestry town centre and main shopping parade.

The site is within close proximity to the A5 and A483 arterial roads, which provide access to Shrewsbury to the east and Welshpool to the south. Oswestry bus station is also located approximately 1 mile from the site.

The surrounding area is predominantly residential in nature with limited employment use to the east of the site. The ' L-shaped' building immediately to the west which is known as Oswalds Court originally formed part of the site and has been converted into apartments.

The location is one which presents a number of opportunities for a variety of uses (STPP).

Description

The site extends to approximately 0.37 hectares (0.91 acres) and comprises of both the former Magistrates Court and Shropshire Council office buildings. Originally being part of a school, dating back to 1914, the former magistrates court comprises a two storey red-brick, building with multiple single storey extensions.

Part of the school buildings and stores to the east of the Magistrates Court were formerly used as office accommodation by Shropshire Council Social Services. This compromises a range of interconnected single storey buildings together with more recent additions. The rear walls to these buildings define the site boundary to the north east and east, beyond which is a public footpath/right of way which connects Holbache Road and Oswald Place.

Internally the main building is configured to operate as a magistrates' court with a main courtroom, with stairs leading to cells and custody area below. Other accommodation includes offices, magistrates retiring room, interview rooms, Registrar office, wedding room, public waiting and reception areas, stores and toilets. The building has a main central entrance which connects to a central corridor which provides access to the first floor.
