Residential Development Opportunity
The site is situated in Gloucester city centre on the northern edge of Gloucester Docks. It is well connected with Gloucester Railway Station 1 mile away, Junction 11A of the M5 just 10 minutes to the east and Cheltenham within a 20 minute drive. The redevelopment of Gloucester Docks and the development of Gloucester Quays outlet centre, has transformed the area to the south of the site into a vibrant destination for shopping and leisure activities.
Full planning and Listed Building applications (Ref: 17/00662/LBC and Ref: 17/00659/FUL) were submitted to Gloucester City Council in June 2017 for the site’s redevelopment described as: ‘Redevelopment of the former HMP Gloucester site comprising the partial demolition and conversion of Grade II* and Grade II Listed buildings to provide 38 residential dwellings (Use Class C3) and 481 sq m (GIA) of flexible commercial/community floorspace (Use Classes A2, A3, A4, A5, B1, D1, D2) at ground floor and first floor of Block C (Chapel wing); demolition of non-listed structures and the construction of even new buildings up to six storeys to accommodate 164 residential dwellings (Use Class C3); and associated car parking, cycle parking, private and communal amenity space, landscaping, access and related infrastructure works.’ The scheme provides, in total, 114 car parking spaces and 188 cycle spaces. Planning permission was granted before the Local Authority’s adoption of CIL and therefore no CIL is payable on the consented scheme. There is no S106 agreement or requirement for affordable housing.
