Full Property Description


The site is located on the Birmingham New road (A4123), Wolverhampton approximately 1.5km south of City Centre. The site is surrounded by a range of uses including residential development to the south and east. There are two vacant plots of land to the north flanking the site’s secondary access onto Dimmock Street.
The main road location offers a high-profile position with buildings suitable for a variety of uses or redevelopment subject to planning permission.


The site extends to approximately 1.19 acres (0.48 ha) and is an irregular shape having been developed as a Roman Catholic Church with presbytery and separate church hall.
The main church building was thought to have been constructed in the 1970’s and is built of brick under a flat roof. The presbytery is understood to predate the church and is of conventional design with rendered and painted elevations under a pitched and hipped tile roof. The church hall is constructed of brick under a pitched interlocking concrete tile roof. There is also a detached double garage building.

The site lies within the jurisdiction of the City of Wolverhampton Council. The site was developed as a religious facility but may be suitable for alternative uses or redevelopment subject to planning permission.
The site is now being offered for sale on an unconditional or “subject to planning” basis and whilst we consider that residential development will well deliver the highest land value, there is no reason why other uses will not be considered.
