A freehold site of approximately 2.6 acres with vacant possession and outline planning consent for residential development (no affordable housing).
Discovery Park was originally the UK headquarters of Pfizer and its iconic office campus and adjacent to the subject site and has attracted a number of new occupiers in recent years. The subject site lies just to the south of Discover Park and a few hundred yards north of the old Cinque Port of Sandwich (population about 6,000). Sandwich is popular not only with residents working in the area, but also retirement and second home owners, with the coast close by, marina facilities and the well-known golf course of St George, home a few years ago to ‘the Open’. Canterbury is about 13 miles to the west, and Ramsgate about 6 miles to the north east, with a rail service to London via St Pancras varies from around 1.5-2 hours. Sandwich and Discovery Park are both bypassed by a new road, the A256, with fast links to Port of Dover as well as Thanet. The Property comprises a level site containing a number of former light industrial buildings now vacated, together with a concrete yard. There is direct road frontage to Ramsgate Road with Stonar Lake opposite. To the west and south is former farmland currently disused. The site is fenced and gated. The land extends to about 2.588 acres/1.047 ha.
