Full Property Description


The units will occupy a prominent roadside site fronting onto Forton Road (B5062) one of the main approaches into Newport town centre leading from the A41.

The units will share an existing forecourt with the Nix Service Station which operates as a petrol station and convenience store. This is an established business which already generates up to 700 transactions per day thus guaranteeing significant “footfall” to the site.

Newport is a busy market town in the Borough of Telford and Wrekin approximately 12 miles west of Stafford and 10 miles north of Telford. Access to the national motorway network can be gained at J13 of J14 of the M6 at Stafford.



The units are to be constructed of blockwork with rendered elevations under a flat boarded and mineral felt roof forming an extension to the existing shop. Currently the proposal is to create two similar sized units however at this stage there is flexibility with the option to create one large unit, two or three small units or any reasonable permutation.

The units will be completed to a shell finish however the owner is prepared to provide an enhanced specification subject to registration and agreement on the rent.




Unit 1 746ft2 (69.3m2)
Unit 2 746ft2 (69.3m2)
