Shrewsbury South

The opportunity

Shrewsbury South is a substantial mixed-use site extending to approximately 14 hectares (35 acres) and offering a range of unique commercial development opportunities for a variety of uses (subject to planning).

For businesses becoming part of this major new development site, individual plots are available ranging from 0.4 – 14 hectares (1 acre to 35 acres) to purchase on a freehold basis. Alternatively, bespoke units can be provided on a design and build basis to suit specific requirements, either to lease or as a freehold purchase.

The site forms part of the Shrewsbury South Sustainable Urban extension, and planning permission has been granted for including classes B1, B2 and B8 uses, a hotel (C1), a care home of up to 70 beds (C2) and supporting local centre and community uses (A1, A2, A3, A4, A5, D1 D2).

It is conveniently situated in a premier out-of-town location, two miles to the south of Shrewsbury town centre, adjacent to Shrewsbury Town Football Club stadium, Wyevale Garden Centre and a proposed new Waitrose store. The site is also close to Meole Brace Retail Park and Shrewsbury Business Park.

Bordered by the A5 Shrewsbury by-pass, the site is accessed from Oteley Road, leading to the A5 which connects directly to the M54 and the national motorway network.
