About the Site
The site is located within the urban area of Abbey Hulton, abutting the green belt on its eastern boundary and comprises the land and buildings of the former Abbey Hill School off Greasley Road. The existing school complex has been vacant and left derelict for a number of years.
The majority of buildings are set back within the site, aside from a detached two storey lodge, behind existing residential properties and are not easily visible from the public highway. The former school is set within overgrown landscaped grounds and includes functional areas, such as car parking and hard surfaced playgrounds.
The main access to the site is from Greasley Road, with a secondary access located to the south off Malcolm Drive. Existing car parking provision is located to the north west of the main cluster of single and two storey buildings. To the south of the school buildings lies both existing hard and soft play areas, along with a smaller area of hardstanding located along the western boundary. There are several mature trees located within the site, predominantly along the site's western boundary, and abutting the open fields to the north east.
The area generally is of a mixed character with both residential and commercial properties. The site is well related to a range of services and facilities. It is in an accessible location readily accessed by means of transport other than the private car.
