Prime development land comes to market

The site in Clifton

Acting on behalf of Nottingham Trent University and Nottingham City Council, Innes England has been appointed to sell 24 acres of former agricultural land and surplus university estate at Clifton, which has outline planning consent for housing.

The site is situated on the western fringes of Clifton, Nottingham, around five miles south west of Nottingham city centre, and is co-owned by the university and the city council.

Craig Straw, director at Innes England, said: “Although we have only just launched the site it is already generating a great deal of interest. It’s a very deliverable scheme made up of surplus university estate and former agricultural land.

“It will provide a fantastic housing scheme for families who will be able to enjoy the site’s perfect location – close to Clifton and its array of facilities, as well as Clifton Village with its woodland and River Trent walks.

“This is a great time to be marketing the site – with a backdrop of a strong residential market. Currently, the site is attracting interest from national and regional house builders alike.”

Innes England is seeking bids on a conditional or non-conditional basis for the whole site with a deadline of 15 March 2021.

Outline planning permission was granted by Nottingham City Council in December for residential development with all matters reserved, except for access. The section 106 agreement, which includes the provision of 20% affordable housing, has been completed.

Deadline for bids is 15 March 2021.
