Full description


Riverside is located within a prime position within Morpeth’s town centre on Bridge Street. The site is easily accessed via the A192 which provides access to the A1. Bridge Street is the prime shopping pitch within the town and occupiers include Costa Coffee, Rutherford and Co, Barclays Banks, WHSmith and Natwest. The street recently benefitted from the attractive development of Sanderson Arcade which includes quality retailers such as Marks & Spencer’s, Crew Clothing, Laura Ashley, Monsoon and Waterstones. The prime retail pitch is less than 5 minutes walk from the site. Morpeth benefits from excellent bus links across Northumberland and to and from Newcastle upon Tyne. There are also train links on the east coast main line.

The setting of the site provides an excellent developmentopportunity for a variety of uses within an increasinglypopular location with fantastic access to local amenities. Sites of this nature are seldom available on the open market under a single disposal.

The potential uses including Residential (potentially over a number of storeys), Office Use, Hotel, Heritage / Arts Centre or potentially a number of other uses subject to planning. A full copy of the development brief document is available to interested parties.
