A new mixed-use development is set to be built on a former factory site in Wiltshire, previously earmarked for a Morrison’s supermarket, after an agreement was reached to buy the land.
London-based Charles Dean Properties has formed Innox Mills Ltd to acquire the 10.6 acre former Bowyers factory site in Trowbridge from the retailer and its development partner Prorsus.
The company is now planning to develop a mixed-use scheme to regenerate the site, which has been derelict for about ten years.
The site has an existing consent for a 70,000 sq ft supermarket, multi-screen cinema and six restaurants.
The site will be named Innox Mills as a tribute to the surviving 19th century woollen mills that form part of Trowbridge’s industrial heritage.
Jonathan Dean from Charles Dean Properties said: “We are delighted to be involved in the planning and future regeneration of this fantastic site. It’s incredibly sad for Trowbridge that this town centre, brownfield site, has been empty for so long.
“We are looking to consult with the community and work on a planning application over the coming months and hope to submit an application to Wiltshire Council in the New Year.”
GCW is the retained agent for the scheme.
Charles Dean Properties leads a small consortium of investors which invests and develops in residential and commercial schemes.
