FORMER NOTTS FIRE SERVICE HQ SITE OFFERED FOR SALE - DEADLINE FOR TENDERS FRIDAY 31ST MARCH 2023
The former Headquarters for Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service has been put on the market for sale. Agents Bishop Property Consultants and Salloway Property Consultants have been appointed to dispose of the property.
The premises are situated adjacent to Bestwood Country Park and the Bestwood Lodge Hotel and occupy a 12-acre site. There is an extensive range of buildings comprising approximately 37,000sq. ft of accommodation all of which are located on approximately 4 acres. The remaining site-area of 8.00 acres is attributed as playing fields.
In September, outline planning permission was granted for the demolition of the existing buildings and the erection of up to 32 residential units.
The agents are anticipating significant interest, not only from house-builders looking to take advantage of the planning permission but also from other organisations who might wish to re-purpose the existing buildings.
Chris Keogh, Associate Director at Salloway Property Consultants expects the property to be popular. "The site is in a unique location and is surrounded by mature trees. It has obvious redevelopment possibilities and benefits from planning permission. I am sure people would love to live in this location – highly convenient and yet having a semi-rural feel – and there will be no shortage of house-builder looking to take advantage of the demand.
"However, the existing buildings on the site are in reasonable condition and I could not rule out interest from institutional buyers for uses such as training, healthcare, educational facilities, or offices."
The site will be sold by informal tender with further details available through the joint agents upon request.
