The Yard, Frances Road, Basingstoke, Hampshire, RG21 3DB

Guide Price* : £325,000

Town Centre Commercial Site

  • Town Centre Commercial Site
  • Suitable for owner occupation/ redevelopment (STPP)
  • 0.3 acres (0.12 Hectares)


The property comprise a former builders yard of approximately 0.3 acres (0.12 Hectares) which provided a mixture of workshops and office buildings within a gated site. The buildings on site have now been demolished and therefore the property comprises a cleared yard space.

The site is located in a predominantly residential area and would therefore lend itself to residential redevelopment, subject to the appropriate consents.


The property is located in Basingstoke town centre and accessed via a private single road leading off Frances Road. Frances Road is ‘top of town’ and is accessed from Bounty Road, a one way road via Southern Road and Hackwood Road. Bounty Road leads to Winchester Road which in turn links to Basingstoke’s ring road system. Frances Road is conveniently located within easy walking distance to the ’top of town’ amenities and Festival Place Shopping Centre and Basingstoke railway station.

Basingstoke is strategically located in the heart of southern England lying some 45 miles south west of London, linked by the M3 motorway at Junctions 6 & 7 and also served by frequent rail service to and from Waterloo. The lower section of the M3 motorway ultimately provides a link to the south coast ports.

Basingstoke is a vibrant town with a strong economy, already home to a number of large international employers and support companies. In particular, it is highly ranked by the National Institute of Economic & Social Research as being a popular destination for IT and digital companies.




The property has had planning consent refused (ref: 18/00106/FUL) for a development of 3 x three bed houses, 1 x two bed flat and 1 x one bed flat.

We understand the basis of the refusal to be on the scale and design of the proposed development, as well as the lack of outdoor space. We therefore consider that a scaled back development of 2-3 dwellings would be acceptable (subject to planning).
