OFFICES in Clarke Road, Northampton, that have planning consent for conversion into nine town houses are drawing considerable interest from developers.

The Victorian terrace building is currently fitted out as open-plan office accommodation on the ground and first floor - and could remain in use as offices - but it is the potential for redevelopment that is proving most attractive.

Offering a total of 6,566 square feet, the site is located in a residential street and is close to Wellingborough Road and Kettering Road.

Offers are invited for the development, which is available to purchase with full residential planning consent in place for the nine-house development.

Another rare opportunity presents itself on St Peter's Way where 0.27 acres of prime development land has become available. Currently used as a motor dealership, the land is located opposite the proposed 4 Waterside site, a new development of 225,000 square feet of Grade A office space, and is close to the new university campus.

The site is expected to generate interest from the motor trade and plant hire sectors as well as developers exploring the potential scope for residential or commercial redevelopment. Offers are invited for the freehold interest.

On the Brackmills Industrial Estate, we have been instructed to market a 12,789 square foot industrial/warehouse unit on Lyveden Road.

The end-of-terrace unit has ancillary office accommodation and an additional 4,070 square foot mezzanine floor if required.

The site also includes a secure yard or car park of around 0.3 acres, and is available to let at a current passing rent of £49,500 per annum, exclusive.

Rather smaller in size is a unit at Malsor House on the Milton Trading Estate on Gayton Road. The 175 square foot office is available to let on a new lease at £3,000 per annum, a price that includes heating, lighting, service charge and postal collection.

In Buckingham, The Oddfellows Hall has become available for sale with potential for change of use or conversion into accommodation.

The Victorian assembly hall is capable of holding around 100 people and is presently a place of worship. It has D1 planning permission, which allows uses such as a clinic, nursery, health centre or gallery. It is also thought that the building would be suitable for conversion into student accommodation to serve the nearby University of Buckingham, subject to the relevant planning approval.
