Residential/mixed use development land: subject to planning
Hawke Ridge is situated to the north of Westbury, a thriving market town with a population of around 20,000. It is located 1.5 miles from the County town of Trowbridge, 15 miles from Bath and 17 miles from Bristol. The site is situated close to the major employment areas of West Wiltshire Trading Estate and White Horse Business Park, together supporting more than 5,000 employees. Westbury railway station, with trains to London Paddington taking c.1 hr 36 mins, is 1.3 miles from the site. The site is serviced by local bus routes that link to Bristol, Bath, Warminster and Salisbury.
The site extends to c.14.4 ha (35.6 acres) of agricultural land and is served by a new 4 arm roundabout and foul pumping station. A third party ownership and adopted lane effectively split the site down the middle and creates the opportunity for a phased development of part and the introduction of a wide range of separate uses. The site is not subject to any protected landscape (national or local) designations, or any ecological, flood risk or other restrictive designations other than a very small area of the site's periphery (0.38 ha (0.93 acres)) that lies within Flood Zones 2 and 3. The site has been extensively marketed for a number of years as a new business park. Despite a high profile marketing campaign, the current owners have been unsuccessful in attracting any occupiers despite having detailed planning permission and reserved matters for a range of building types.
The site will be disposed of by way of an informal tender, offers will be invited on an unconditional or promotional basis. If required, the vendors offer to provide ongoing assistance to the purchaser to verify the marketing history of the site. Offers should be submitted to email@example.com by 1pm on Friday 1 March 2019. Further information on the bids is attached in the brochure.
