The land has been allocated for B1/B2 employment use, and may be suitable for alternative uses either in part or as a whole. This acquisition is Vardy Property Group's first strategic land purchase, and will be held for future development, subject to planning.
Whilst there are no immediate plans to develop the site speculatively, we are considering a number of options at present, and hope to generate interest from occupiers either to purchase or lease completed buildings, which can be developed to meet individual requirements.
The site overlooks the roundabout junction of the A698 and B6435. The site comprises approximately 8 hectares (20 acres) with access gained directly from the A698, the principal road between the A1 and Berwick Town Centre.
The site adjoins a mix of residential, trade and industrial uses. The Tweedside and East Ord Industrial Estates which represent Berwick's foremost employment locations are both in close proximity to the site. Nearby occupiers include Jewson, Peugeot, Plumbcentre and John Deere.
Terms are available on both a leasehold and freehold basis. Design and build opportunities to suit specific occupier requirements.
The site lies within an area allocated within the Berwick-upon-Tweed Local Plan for employment development for the use of offices or light industry (Class B1), general industry (Class B2). The site may be suitable for a variety of alternative uses subject to planning permission.
