Former Anglesey Shell site for sale
DTZ has been instructed to sell a 200-acre development site in Rhosgoch on behalf of the Isle of Anglesey Charitable Trust.
Situated approximately two miles to the South of Amlwch, the site comprises a former tank farm and was developed by Shell UK in 1972. The site served as a storage station for crude oil from a receiving shore station at the Port of Amlwch before pipeline transfer to the company's oil refinery at Stanlow, Ellesmere Port, Wirral.
Identified as a strategic site within Anglesey's Energy Island Programme, the plot offers potential for a number of redevelopment options and is of importance to the island's wider policy agenda.
The main part of the site has been cleared and includes three large walled areas containing twelve raised concrete tank platforms, areas of hard standing and an internal road network, rail line and sidings. An area towards the north east of the site remains undeveloped and is greenfield.
Anglesey was awarded enterprise zone status in 2011. The zone will focus on the energy and environment sector and will accelerate the investment required to secure the island's future as a leading location for future low carbon energy innovation, generation and demonstration. The Rhosgoch site is one of eight key sites identified as a focus of EZ investment.
Tony O'Keefe, industrial director at DTZ who is leading the disposal team said: "The site is suitable for a number of uses, particularly within the environmental sector and we are seeking initial expressions of interest on 12 December 2014."
