Colliers successfully resolves Bloor's development issues at Bathwick brownfield site25th July 2012

In a deal brokered by Colliers International, 13 new houses are to be built by Bloor Homes on the former Lime Grove School premises at Bathwick.

The site, which lies between Widcombe and Bathwick, near the Kennet and Avon canal, has been empty for five years.

Chris Dawson, director of development consulting at Colliers International in Bristol, is delighted that the future use of the brownfield site had been resolved: “The progress of this site typifies development site disposals in Bath – where strong purchaser demand is frequently tempered by what can be achieved in planning terms, given the need to design homes that respect Bath’s World Heritage status and other conservation issues.”

Bloor Homes submitted an initial planning application for 20 homes on the site but were refused permission. A revised proposal for 13 homes was granted planning permission earlier in June and the long running sale completed.

Within walking distance of Bath city centre, the site was formerly home to a special school, which was closed five years ago when three schools were merged to create the new purpose built Three Ways School at Odd Down.

Bloor is planning to build two, two-bedroom homes and 11 four-bedroom homes, all with garages and parking.
