COMMON USE CLASS: B1 Business, B2 General Industrial, B8 Storage and Distribution, Sui_generis_1
11.7 acre development opportunity in Bishop's Stortford for sale. Detailed planning consent has been granted and implemented for two data centre buildings comprising 206,000 sq ft of space.
The site comprises a fairly level area of ground which was previously occupied by GSK. The former buildings have mostly been demolished, to leave a substantial concrete slab, access roads and unmade ground. Access to the site is gained via a private access road within the title boundary via Millfield Lane, which connects to the A120.
The site is a significant employment site, that was formerly occupied by GSK. The majority of buildings have been demolished, however some still remain. The site benefits from an implemented planning permission (3/08/0593/FP) for the construction of two data centre buildings (206,000 sq ft GIA). This planning permission was granted in 2008 and implemented by the construction of foundations, therefore the consent remains live and able to be built out.
The implemented planning permission establishes the principle of redevelopment and a level of development that was considered acceptable. The site is currently allocated in the EHDC adopted Local Plan (2007) as a ‘Major Development Site’. EHDC is preparing a new Local Plan. The site will remain designated in
the Rural Area Beyond the Green Belt, which provides for the complete redevelopment of sustainable brownfield sites. Saved Policy EDE2 and draft Policy ED1 provide for the continued use of existing and former employment sites in employment use (Classes B1 Business, B2 General Industrial, B8 Storage and Distribution or related Sui Generis).
