Site next to Cadbury factory on market

Development land next to Cadbury World and the famous chocolate factory with approved plans for 52 apartments has gone up for sale for offers in excess of £3 million.

Property agents Bond Wolfe are marketing the cleared site that lies behind Mary Vale Road and Franklin Way in the model village of Bournville in Birmingham.

The 0.57-acre rectangular shaped site was formerly used as a car park and benefits from full planning permission for the development of 52 apartments with external grounds and parking spaces.

The scheme includes 31 one-bedroomed apartments and 21 two-bedroomed apartments, with a total indoor area of 37,275 sq ft over four floors.

James Mattin, managing director agency at Birmingham-based Bond Wolfe, said: “This development opportunity is situated in a prime location at the heart of much sought after Bournville. The proximity to the Cadbury chocolate factory means future residents will have the pleasurable smell of cocoa in the air as well as being a short walk away from the popular Cadbury World theme park.

“The freehold site is close to various bus routes and just 150m from Bournville Station on the cross-city Lichfield-Redditch line giving ready access to the city centre, university and other key destinations.”
