Finding the right place

Multiple Building Plot
£Option Sought
An Option Agreement is sought to take this brownfield site through planning. The site could accommodate a number of different uses. At present a planning application is due to be submitted for a 3-storey block of apartments in the region of 20 flats. This could be the best way forward on the site, but other proposals and schemes can be considered. The current scheme indicates a mix of large 1 and 2 bed flats with an average gross internal area of approximately 800sq.ft each. Is there an alternative approach to maximise the potential of the site? The site fronts onto the main arterial road to the west of the city. Opposite the site is fairly intensive residential development. Land to the southern boundary has recently been sold for residential development. The site is within easy walking distance of less than half a mile to Gloucester Quays, with its numerous retail outlets, bars and restaurants. The city centre is less than a mile from the plot.
The Site
The plot is level and is a brownfield site of approximately 0.25 ha or just over 0.6 acres. The storage and office buildings on site cover approximately 780sq.m. Various reports have already been completed, being a soil report, ecology, noise risk assessment and acoustic report, transport, highways and flood modelling. The plot is not in flood zone 1, so there is discussion around raising the living accommodation possibly above garaging. Other options can be considered. The current buildings may contain some asbestos to be removed.
The Area
Gloucester is noted for its Gothic cathedral, but it is also a modern City. Gloucester Quays is an attractive shopping area with riverside bars and restaurants. Further shopping destinations in the city include The Mall Shopping Centre and King’s Walk. The city is home to the museum of Gloucester and several other important museums as well as the Guildhall Theatre. Gloucester has a premiership rugby team who play in the top tier of rugby union and are also involved in European competition. The 250- acre Robinswood Country Park offers country walks and nature trails and is an essential natural habitat, offering views across to the Malvern Hills. The city is home to The University of Gloucestershire whilst independent education is offered at The Kings School. St Pauls Primary School and Ribston Hall High School are both rated as Good by Ofsted. The railway station serves the major cities including London, Birmingham, Bristol and Swindon.
The site has all main services including gas already on site. We would advise interested parties to make their own enquiries with regard to services prior to exchange of contracts.
The site can be viewed externally. If an internal viewing is necessary, then this will need to be booked through The Land Bank Partnership.
