Magnum Opus worked in partnership with the sellers of Leigh Service Station when buying this contaminated former petrol station. Contamination studies were complete early in the acquisition process to de-risk this element of the project and maximise value for the sellers. An unconditional purchase was agreed with a quick exchange and a 6 month delayed completion.
The site is an extremely awkward shape and surrounded by conservation area.
Planning was obtaining within 10 weeks of exchanging contracts after a comprehensive dialog with the Local Planning Authority.
The project started on site in Spring 2020 with properties being offered for sale in early 2021.
