BROWNFIELD and contaminated land specialist BXB has acquired the former Cameron’s Yard site in Hale Bank, Widnes.

The 3.75 acre plot was previously used for industrial purposes and is viewed as a regeneration opportunity by BXB.

The company says it has opened discussions with Halton Borough Council about options for the site on Hale Road, which sits within the Hale Bank Regeneration Action Area.

“This is a typical brownfield site that will benefit from our in-house technical, de-risking and planning skills,” said BXB director Gary Goodman.

“This acquisition is in partnership with Promenade Estates and further strengthens our working relationship with them,” added Goodman. The two companies are working together on the proposed regeneration of a 110-acre former glass works site in Cowley Hill, St Helens.

Mason Owen advised BXB and Promenade on the acquisition, which was unconditional via sales agent CBRE. The purchase price was not disclosed. Burmans acted for the purchaser
