Development land for sale with planning permission for 52 apartments

Bond Wolfe Bournville development site

Development land next to Cadbury World with approved plans for 52 apartments has gone up for sale for offers in excess of £3m.

Property agent Bond Wolfe is marketing the cleared site that lies behind Mary Vale Road and Franklin Way in the model village of Bournville in Birmingham.
The 0.57-acre site was formerly used as a car park and benefits from full planning permission for the development of 52 apartments with external grounds and parking spaces.
The scheme includes 31 one-bedroomed apartments and 21 two-bedroomed apartments, with a total indoor area of 37,275 sq ft over four floors.
James Mattin, managing director agency at Birmingham-based Bond Wolfe, said: “This is a dream of a development opportunity situated in a prime location at the heart of much sought after Bournville.
“The proximity to the Cadbury chocolate factory means future residents will have the pleasurable smell of cocoa in the air as well as being a short walk away from the popular Cadbury World theme park.
“The freehold site is close to various bus routes and just 150m from Bournville Station on the cross-city Lichfield-Redditch line, giving ready access to the city centre, university and other key destinations.”
The land neighbours the five-storey Franklin House, former Cadbury offices that have now been converted to residential use, while the main Cadbury factory buildings and the Cadbury social club are both around the corner on Bournville Lane.
