A Freehold Site For Residential Redevelopment, subject to the appropriate Planning Permission

Property Description

A large irregular shaped parcel of land fronting onto Halesowen Road. The site may be suitable for residential development of either a two storey four/five bedroom detached dwelling or a single bungalow subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents.


Freehold – Vacant possession upon completion.

Site Area

We understand that the land extends to 1187.5 square meters (1420.3 square yards) or thereabouts.


The site is only considered suitable for residential development with a single dwelling due to restrictions imposed on access by highways.
The development must be in accordance with the Council's external space standards to protect the residential amenity of neighbouring dwellings. Planning Permission would be required for the development. The site is within a Flood Risk area imposed by the Environment Agency and a Flood Risk assessment would be required with any Planning Application to indentify any required mitigation measures.
Sandwell Metropolitan Borough Council have issued a Planning Statement to illustrate the potential for residential redevelopment and this can be inspected either within the legal pack or the Auctioneer's offices.
For any planning enquiries, please contact Ceri Phillips at Sandwell Metropolitan Borough Council on 0121 569 4128.


Mains services are understood to be available in the vicinity of the site, but prospective buyers should make their own independent enquiries as to the suitability of services for their particular requirements.
