The 3.75 acre plot was previously used for industrial purposes and is viewed as a regeneration opportunity by contaminated land specialist BXB
Brownfield and contaminated land specialist BXB has acquired the former Cameron’s Yard site in Hale Bank, Widnes.
The 3.75 acre plot was previously used for industrial purposes and is viewed as a regeneration opportunity by BXB. The company has opened discussions with Halton Council about options for the site on Hale Road, which sits within the Hale Bank Regeneration Action Area.
BXB director Gary Goodman said: “This is a typical brownfield site that will benefit from our in-house technical, de-risking and planning skills. This acquisition is in partnership with Promenade Estates and further strengthens our working relationship with them.”
The two companies are also working together on the proposed regeneration of a 110-acre former glass works site in Cowley Hill, St Helens.
Mason Owen advised BXB and Promenade on the acquisition, which was unconditional via sales agent CBRE. The purchase price was not disclosed. Bermans partner Claire Morris acted for the purchaser.
