Allscott Heath, Shawbirch Road, Allscott, Telford, Shropshire, TF6 5EQ.


Allscott Heath occupies an enviable location within Shropshire located between the main urban centres of Telford and Shrewsbury. Although within a rural location, the site benefits from being in close proximity to numerous facilities and public services.

The new development is situated on Shawbirch Road just outside the village of Allscott, which falls within the parish of Wrockwardine and the borough of Telford & Wrekin. The village of Walcot is nearby.


Allscott Heath is a former British Sugar factory extending to approximately 67.46 ac (27.30 ha). Th site consists of a mixture of greenfield and brownfield land. All of the former factory buildings have now been demolished to slab level.

The site benefits from outline planning permission for a residential led development comprising of 470 new homes with associated green spaces. In addition the development will include a new primary school, retail/healthcare, allotments and significant improvements and relocation of the local sports and social club. 10% of the homes within the development will be affordable.

The planning permission has been carefully designed to ensure the development can be successfully delivered as a whole, or in phases.

The village will benefit from a significant local amenity provision. Residents will enjoy the benefits of a rural location with the convenience of the site's close proximity to transport connections, schools, retail and leisure amenities.

Due to the scale of the opportunity, the landowner has enlisted Northern Trust as a development manager for the site. This is with the intention of allowing developers to concentrate on delivery of housing as opposed to complex site infrastructure and servicing. It is anticipated that all phase specific reserved matters, planning conditions and Section 106 obligations (such as affordable housing provision) will be the responsibility of the developer.

The landowner has undertaken various reports and investigations which are available as part of the site technical pack. This can be made available to interested parties upon request from the joint selling agents.
