Further Information

Please note any sale would be subject to a restrictive covenant (RC) not to use the site for scrap metal without our consent.

In addition we are in the process of formally surrendering the current site Environment Agency Permit (as EA have processing delays due to COVID-19). Therefore, any sale will require the vendor to retain reasonable access rights for the EA to assess the site for the purposes of surrendering our EA Permit and if required access for vendor and their contractors to carry out any [very unlikely] remediation pre-surrender (and potential EA follow up inspection).

We do however, expect a "low risk" surrender that would not involve any remediation works or ground condition surveys.

For further information then please contact the sole agents, LM6
