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 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 and local community.
The project started on site in Spring 2020 with properties being offered for sale in early 2021.
All the houses are now sold.
