  • Area



The property comprises a roughly rectangular brownfield site extending to approximately 1.58 acres. The site has been used for workshop/industrial and open storage purposes for many years and comprises a range of single storey commercial buildings of brick and block construction, extending to some 508.57 sq. m (5,475 sq.ft), plus a large secure concrete yard.

The boundaries are defined by the existing fenceline other than the boundary adjacent to the site entrance. A new boundary may be formed here by incorporating part of the garden of the adjacent house if required.

Please note the boundaries are subject to a survey.

The property is located approx. 1.3 miles due west of the City Centre in a good quality residential area just to the south of Roxwell Road and east of Beach's Drive. The City provides a full range of services, including a thriving modern shopping centre, as well as a range of well regarded primary and secondary schools.

Roxwell Road is one of the main approach roads into the City Centre and benefits from a good bus service into the City Centre. There are also regular direct rail services from Chelmsford Station into London Liverpool street which take approximately 35 minutes.

The property is surrounded by existing residential housing and is a few metres to the north of Admirals Park, a large area of public open space that runs along the river Chelmer all the way into the City Centre.

The site is considered to have potential for redevelopment for a range of alternative uses including care, education, community, retirement and residential housing. The site is allocated as a strategic growth site in the Chelmsford Adopted Local Plan under Policy 1q. with the potential to deliver around 14 new homes. Development is permitted provided the scheme meets policy GR1 which outlines a number of development principles that must be followed.

An information pack is available upon request.

We understand the property is connected to mains water, drainage and electricity. We have not tested any of the services and all interested parties should rely upon their own enquiries. We also understand there is three phase power on the site.
