The property comprises a substantial complex of buildings that made up the RAF Coltishall officers mess. The original block dates from 1939/40 of red brick beneath a red tile roof, the front block being arranged on ground floor with dining hall and leisure facilities. The rear accommodation block is on ground and first floors. The building is listed and lies within the RAF Coltishall Conservation area. There are substantial later additions, some over ground and two upper floors, and to the rear a long terrace of garages. The buildings are set within large open spaces, with additional undeveloped land on the far side of the entrance and across Jaguar Drive. There are ample open spaces and on two sides the outlook is rural.


Badersfield lies about 10 miles north East of Norwich, and comprises a settlement of some 380 houses, once the married quarters estate of the famous RAF Coltishall which was decommissioned in 2006. Badersfield lies between Scottow, Buxton and Coltishall, and lies within easy reach of nearby Norwich via the A140 and A47. There are rail connections 3 miles away at Worsted. The property occupies a substantial corner site fronting Hautbois Road and Jaguar Drive from which there is access. the long long rear boundary is onto the existing residential development. The former operational buildings including hangers have been developed into the Scottow Enterprise Park, which is a spacious and well laid out popular business park with secure access on the other side of the base. Long term growth plans are to achieve employment levels up to 18,000 and to bring additional buildings back into use.




Informal advice from the planners indicate that some of the buildings are listed where it is envisaged that a conversion to C3 residential use may be the most likely outcome, although other uses may be appropriate. The unlisted buildings and surrounding land also might be converted or redeveloped subject to consideration of both the setting of the listed buildings and conservation area designation.
