WHY BUY THIS LAND?
A unique opportunity to purchase a valuable parcel of land on the eastern edge of Sheffield, close to the Meadowhall shopping centre.
Measuring 0.75 acres, the land lies off the A631, Bawtry Road and forms part of a disued private sports ground. With an abundance of public recreational facilities now available nearby - including the neighbouring Sheffield Hallam University Sports Park - the site could have the potential for development.
In fact, in 2012, the land was considered as an option for new housing by Sheffield City Council.
The site is well served by transport links being close to both the M1 and Sheffield train station. These provide fast and direct links to other major cities such as Leeds, Nottingham, Manchester and London.
Due to a shortage of housing in the area, Sheffield City Council has to identify sites for new housing,
The land for sale formed part of a larger site that was considered an option for new housing back in 2012.
The original site measured approximately 8 acres and had an estimated dwelling capacity of 95 dwellings. Prorated, this site could have an estimated capacity for 9 new homes.
