The site is approximately 0.19 hectares in size ( 0.48 acres) and comprises a vacant former bingo hall and cinema. The existing unused building rises to 6 storeys in height and heavily influences the character of the local high street shops directly opposite. The property was formerly a bingo hall extending to 20,715 sq. ft. (1,924.53 sqm) over ground, mezzanine, first and second.

The vernacular of the area is generally dwellings with heights of 2-3 storeys and over, with all immediate neighboring buildings having a substantial building footprint, such as The Village Green Inn. The local area is very urban and built up, with the 5-road junction being a district centre with many individual and local shops, pubs and restaurants.

Both Streetly Road and Marsh Lane are wide tree lined boulevards with setback buildings providing a calm, generous and open character to the area. The existing 6 storey bingo hall benefits from the tree lined boulevards.

The site is prominently located at the junction of Streetly Road and Marsh Lane in Stockland Green to the north of Birmingham City Centre. Birmingham is the most populated city in the UK outside of London, with a total population just under 1.2 million. Stockland Green lies within the jurisdiction of Birmingham City Council. The site lies approximately 7km north of Birmingham City Centre on an arterial road connecting to the northern suburbs. It is 1.75km from Junction 6 and it is a sustainable location where there are strong transport links. Bus routes run along Streetly/Slade Road running north to south and along Marsh Hill/Reservoir Road going east to west providing strong links to Birmingham Centre and Birmingham’s Core Employment Areas. The closest train station is Erdington Station, which sits less than 1.5km to the east and there are 11 bus stops within 0.5km of the property, along the 5 major arterial routes
