As we work so closely with the construction, development, plant and crane hire industries, we think it’s helpful to bring you the latest in land and development opportunities. We’ve compiled together five of the most exciting land plots (in our humble opinion) currently for sale in the North, UK.  

Even if you’re not interested in buying or investing, it’s interesting to browse and see what new developments could be appearing near you in the not-so-distant future.  

Trafford Retail Park, Manchester 

Fresh on the market and prime Manchester, practically facing the world-renowned Trafford Retail Park. The site is cleared, vacant and ready for action. This is a brand new development opportunity and we suspect it will be snapped up pretty quickly given the excellent location. 

  • Price on application.  
  • Approximately 4 acres 
  • Suitable for commercial or residential uses 
  • Subject to planning permission.

Frizington, Cumbria

This site is fully vacant and planning permission has been granted for five houses – it’s ready to go! Located just outside the breath-taking Lake District making it an ideal spot for people to purchase a holiday home. With a huge list of ticks already against this development opportunity, it would be ideal for a developer new to the industry.  

  • Guide Price £25,000 
  • 5,990 sq.ft.   
  • Suitable for residential uses (freehold)

Bolton, (Greater Manchester) 

In a popular location for residential houses, this spot would be ideal for building more homes and adding further value to the already thriving area. The average property price, as of November 2021, in this area is £307,316! 

  • Guide price £29,000  
  • 62,431 sq. Ft.

Winwick Road, Warrington

The development opportunities for this site range very wide. The site is ready for construction and completely clear of any structures. Locally this listing has been described as ‘highly prominent’ and created a buzz within the field. It looks ideal for a commercial build and is definitely one to watch.  

  • Price on application 
  • 4.74 acres 
  • Suitable for a variety of uses

Carrington, Greater Manchester 

The biggest development we’ve found! A big project suited to an experienced developer but one that would pay back tenfold. A huge plot of land with huge potential. This is a must-see, definitely one to enquire about.
