Land next to beautiful Clent Hills among potential housing sites at next Bond Wolfe auction

More than half an acre of land next to the Clent Hills beauty spot in Worcestershire will catch bidders’ eyes at Bond Wolfe’s next auction on Wednesday 20 October.

It is one of a string of potential development sites in desirable locations across the Midlands coming up at the livestreamed property auction.

Several already have planning permission, but the high demand for residential land will put all the plots high on developers’ target lists, especially given the bargain guide prices* set against them.

For instance, the land on the west side of Bromsgrove Road in Clent, near Stourbridge, has a guide price of just £50,000+.

Colin Totney, a land and development surveyor at Bond Wolfe, said: “This 0.568 acres lies in a highly attractive area of countryside a short distance from the National Trust’s Clent Hills.

“This plot may be suitable for future development, subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents, and interested parties should make their own enquiries with Bromsgrove District Council.

“It sits on the west side of Bromsgrove Road, which provides access to both Stourbridge town centre and the M5 motorway via Stourbridge Road – the A291.

“Even without planning permission we are expecting a lot of interest and highly competitive bidding from far and wide.”

Up in Redditch, a guide price of £110,000 to £120,000 has been set for land at West Avenue, which comes with planning permission for six self-contained flats.

The 0.2 acre plot is being sold as a freehold residential development opportunity in what is a mostly residential area south of Redditch town centre.

A similar sized plot of land to the rear of 8 Walsall Street in Wednesbury also comes with planning permission and has a guide price of £90,000+.

The proposed development would be a substantial four-bedroomed, detached house in a desirable spot close to Wednesbury town centre, within easy reach of Walsall, Wolverhampton and Birmingham as well as the motorway network.

Also attracting attention is a parcel of land at Market Street in Swadlincote, South Derbyshire, with a guide price of just £29,000+, offering the potential for a mixed-use development, subject to planning permission.

And a small plot of land adjacent to 44 Rood End Road in Oldbury being sold on behalf of Sandwell Metropolitan Borough Council has a starting price of £38,000+, with 0.073 acres offering the potential for a single detached, three-bedroomed home, subject to planning permission.

These plots of land are among 188 lots that will appear in Bond Wolfe’s next auction which starts at 9am on Wednesday 20 October. The auction will be livestreamed via Bond Wolfe’s website with remote bidding by proxy, telephone or internet only.
