3.11 acres, Newtown, Powys, Mid Wales
For Sale - Guide Price £875,000

DESCRIPTION & SITUATION The site is located toward the western side of the largest town in Powys. Newtown is served well by the existing infrastructure including the A483 and the A489 linking Newtown to key strategic centres in the West Midlands and Central Wales. Newtown also benefits from the local train station less than 2 miles from the site, furthering the links between the town and the rest of western England and Wales.  

THE SITE The site provides a total site area of approximately 3.11 acres (1.26 hectares) and benefits from outline planning consent under planning reference P/2016/0797 for up to 30 residential dwellings. The planning consent gives the provision for access directly onto the A489. An indicative layout suggests that the site could accommodate up to 30 residential dwellings, some of which will gain from the attractive riverside facet included of the site located to the east. This figure is to be determined with any reserved matters application.

Services and facilities provided in Newtown include a Hospital, a College of Further Education, Primary and Secondary Schools, significant employment opportunities, a wide retail complex both in and out of town and leisure facilities (including sports centre). There are strong local transport links including bus and rail opportunities to link the settlement to the wider area and nationally. Being the largest town in Powys, Newtown will continue to be a growth hub for housing and employment opportunities in Powys.

Another key consideration for development is the soon-to-be adopted new bypass which will further relax transport pressures around Newtown. Newtown is located approximately 75 miles from the town of Shrewsbury and approximately 44 miles from the town of Aberystwyth.  

DIRECTIONS Travelling from Welshpool take the A483 and continue on this road for approximately 15 miles until reaching Newtown. Having followed the A483, join the A489 through Newtown for one mile and the site will be situated on the right-hand side as denoted by a Berrys and Halls for sale sign.
