Buoyed by recent successes on Newtown Industrial Estate, Richard is now focusing his attention on the sale of St Barnabas Church Hall, which occupies a prominent location fronting onto Newtown Road itself. The building is being sold on behalf of the Trustees of St Barnabas Parish Church to fund the construction of a new facility at the main St Barnabas Church at Brookside.

Rev Eleanor Hancock says "Whilst there are of course many happy memories of events and activities associated with this property, we feel the time is right for the church and for the wider community we serve to focus our efforts and resources on providing modern facilities at our main church site. We are hopeful that a business or individual will recognise the unique opportunities the building presents and look forward with interest to seeing what proposed uses come forward".

The property is a single storey purpose built church hall with associated kitchen and WC facilities extending to 2,848 sq ft on a 0.1 acre site.

It is understood change of use for residential purposes would be viewed positively by the local planners, although a range of alternative uses could be considered subject to securing the necessary consent.

Offers are invited for the freehold interest. For further information or to arrange a viewing, please contact Richard Percival or Ben Blain at Carigiet Cowen on 01228 544733.
