The site is located on the southern side of the Worcester to the west of the A38 Bath Road, south of the Ketch Roundabout. The A38 Bath Road provides a direct route from the site into the centre of Worcester.
Worcester City Centre is approximately 3 miles to the north of the site. Worcester is situated approximately 30 miles south-west of Birmingham and 29 miles north of Gloucester. Worcester is conveniently accessed off Junctions 6 & 7 of the M5 motorway and has a direct rail link to London Paddington.
Worcester is an attractive location for residential development, boasting a range of facilities and amenities including several highly rated state and private schools, Worcester University as well as an extensive range of high street shops and supermarkets. Worcester is also a large employment area providing a base for companies such as Worcester Bosch, Mazak and Gtech.
The site is approximately 6.67 acres (2.7 hectares) in area and is mainly brownfield. It lies to the south of the extensive residential area of St Peter's and to the north of Kempsey village but does incorporate some greenfield land.
The site itself is made up of a collection of workshop, office and welfare buildings surrounded by a large circulation yard and coach park with an enclosed agricultural paddock to the west.
The site is enclosed by a mature hedgerow along its western boundary. A belt of trees and a mature hedgerow encloses the site to the south. An office building and Clerkenleap farmhouse (office use) lie adjacent to the east.
Lying to the south of Worcester, the development will benefit excellent views over the River Severn towards the Malvern Hills and from being within a short distance of all the local facilities and amenities.
The site benefits from outline planning permission for the erection of up to 66 dwellings and a 32 bed Care Homes under application reference 17/00119/OUT with all matters reserved apart from access.
The planning permission will be subject to a Section 106 Agreement which is expected to allocate 40% of the properties on Greenfield Land as affordable housing and 30% of the properties on Brownfield Land as affordable housing.
The opportunity exists for a developer to acquire and build out this exciting residential development scheme on the edge of Worcester.
We would expect high buyer demand for the open market properties given that the site is very well located, has good access to local services and is convenient not only for Worcester but also for commuters to Birmingham and the wider West Midlands Conurbation.
