London Road, Shrewsbury, Shropshire, SY2 6PG
This site is to be delivered as a self-build scheme by Shropshire Council. It is mainly improved grassland and grade 2/3 agricultural land bounded by the River Severn to the east, where the site slopes down relatively steeply. The site is then bounded by London Road and nine individual properties to the south. The crematorium is to the west and land owned by a private developer to the north.
Approximately 4.41ha is available for development, shown edged red on the plan, and this will accommodate 47 homes, made up of 37 self-build plots and 10 affordable housing plots. As part of the Council's Local Plan process the site has been assessed (SHREW001) as being suitable for limited low density, sensitively designed housing.
The main aim of releasing the land for sale is to provide serviced plots to residents to build their own homes. The scheme will bring forward a sustainable site for development in an area that has access to the historic town centre and local amenities, events, schools and key employment sites. The site will access a main transport corridor from the A5 into the centre of town and is adjacent to an employment site.
The project will also provide a process for the disposal of council-owned land for self-build affordable homes and promote sustainable design.
Interested parties should complete the enquiry form to register their interest with the council.
