Lot 43 - The Former St. Anthony's School, Belle Vue Road, Cinderford, Gloucestershire, GL14 2AA

  • Unconditional Online Auction Sale
  • Guide Price* : £165,000+

Development Potential



This former school is situated in a mainly residential location in the town of Cinderford. The property benefits from a prominent position within the town and local amenities are easily accessible, approx. 500m from the town centre. The city of Gloucester is located 18 miles to the east and is accessible via vehicle and public transport. There is an array of beautiful villages on the outskirts of Cinderford also, which provide shops, restaurants etc. as well as beautiful scenic walks and views.

The plot measures approx. 0.5 acres and the school consists of 3 linked buildings with 1205 sq. metres of accommodation. The school fronts onto Belle Vue Road and can be accessed via Flaxley Street also.

There is huge potential to convert the site to a high-density residential scheme (subject to necessary permissions). A pre-application has been submitted with a positive response from the Loacal Authority.

Below are extracts of the response from the pre-application enquiries.

"The site is located within a defined settlement boundary where the provision of new residential development is supported by both national and local policy due to being located in a sustainable location. "

" It is clear that the building has been vacant for some time and therefore I imagine that justification can be put forward to consider a residential use. "

"Overall, I would consider that there is scope to consider an alternative use for the site, providing information is submitted supporting this, as outlined above. The area in which the site is located is close to the town centre and in a predominantly residential area, which would therefore lend itself well to either of the proposed uses."
