Sale Put to Bed in Bedminster.05 July

Acting on behalf of the vendors, the Swindon office are pleased to announce the sale of 217 St Johns Lane, Bedminster, Bristol to Brighter Places. The property which was sold with vacant possession was a former William Hill betting office with 2 floors of offices above. The sale completed once Brighter Places received planning permission for a comprehensive social housing development which incorporates the adjoining former Health Centre site which they had previously purchased. Jeremy Sutton, who handled the sale comments, “When the property became available, Brighter Places were already in contract for the Health Centre, so they were the obvious purchaser, and a sale was quickly agreed. It was only the Pandemic and the need for a completely new planning application for the combined sites which delayed an earlier completion. It will be good to see a rather tired and obsolete building demolished and much needed Affordable Housing being developed in this location”
