Property Reference



Development Land, Bath Road, Ironbridge, Telford, Shropshire, TF8 7AY.


The land is situated in the historic town of Ironbridge approximately four miles south of Telford Town Centre and the M54 motorway, providing easy access to the West Midlands conurbation to the east and Shrewsbury and Mid Wales to the west. Ironbridge is a World Heritage site, being the birth place of the Industrial Revolution and boasting several tourist attractions and museums such as Blists Hill, Ironbridge Gorge and Coalport China Museum, as well as the infamous Iron Bridge. Ironbridge benefits from many well kept footpaths, cycle trails and bridle paths and has a good selection of shops, bars, cafes and restaurants in the town.

The property itself is situated in the northwest corner of The Square (adjacent) in Ironbridge, to the rear of the Tontine Hotel with steps leading up to Church Hill. The site stretches to the west of Church Steps and below the rock surmounted by St Luke's Church, sloping down southwards to Bath Road.


The site consists of development land extending to approximately 0.475 acres, which currently accommodates a redundant single storey industrial building, which is a former printing works, as shown on the block/location plan. The site has planning permission for the demolition of the existing structure and the construction of a three-storey, four-bedroom guesthouse extending to just under 4,000 square feet, incorporating a two-bedroom manager's flat at second floor level.

The proposed development includes the creation of a new vehicular access off Bath Road, with a parking area and turning head and the landscaping of the remaining area.

It should be noted that the current planning consent is in fact an under development of the site and the local planning authority has verbally indicated that they would be favourable to a proposal for a further detached residence on the site and planning consent is likely to be forthcoming.

A disc containing a copy of the planning permission, large scale site plans, a ground investigation and test report, and a site overall stability assessment is available upon request.
