A NEW six-property development has been revealed by the owners of Oswestry’s former ambulance station.
Mold-based WCE Properties submitted an application to erect six detached dwellings following the demolition of the existing station building on land at Morda Bank, Morda, last week.
The four-bedroom houses will each have two parking spaces, with access for five from Morda Road, with the sixth accessible from the additional access road via Glentworth Avenue.
In their proposal, the developers say: “The proposal would result in the re-use of a prime development site for a residential scheme that would set a precedent to other new developments locally and nationally in the level of sustainability and eco-measures employed. It will deliver a balanced, mixed and sustainable development design to integrate positively with the local street scene and vernacular.”
The submission comes after WCE Properties purchased the site in June last year, six months after it was put on the market by West Midlands Ambulance Service for £350,000.
At that time, development manager, John Beardsell confirmed that he had received “favourable feedback” from the local planning authority for redeveloping the site for a “high quality residential development”.
The ambulance station was vacated in October 2012 after WMAS established a new base within the Oswestry Medical Centre as part of its ‘Make Ready’ programme.
The land is also included in the proposed Site Allocations and Management of Developments (SAMDev) plan boundary.
