Land of former recycling depot put up for sale after plans submitted for 75 new homes

A Rushcliffe Borough Council owned depot in the sought after Nottingham suburb of West Bridgford is for sale with “strong potential for residential development.”

A planning application has recently been submitted for the demolition of the site’s existing buildings and the construction of up to 76 new homes.

The site has been used as a recycling depot for the past four decades, but the service has now relocated to Eastcroft depot close to Nottingham’s London Road.

Buyers have until noon on Wednesday 19th June to submit offers for the 4.7 acre site which is situated 0.5 miles from West Bridgford’s town centre and three miles outside of Nottingham. It is bound to the north, south and west by existing homes and Abbey Road Primary School and West Bridgford allotments are situated to the east.

Ann Taylor, development director at Savills Nottingham, comments: “The redevelopment of the Abbey Road depot will create an exciting new community in the highly regarded neighbourhood of West Bridgford. The scheme will aim to provide high quality modern homes and open space to create a fully integrated new community within walking distance of West Bridgford town centre. We are anticipating a great deal of interest in the site.”
