It sits behind an Aldi food store and adjacent to a modern hospital and medical centre. The sale was completed by commercial property advisers Christie & Co.

“Achieving planning on this site took a large amount of effort from ourselves, Mercian and Christie & Co and we will now be working hard over the coming months to bring this much-needed care facility to market." Jordan Rundle, associate director at Christie & Co, who handled the sale, said: "Moreton-in-Marsh is under supplied with market standard care beds and this, coupled with the strong underlying wealth profile of the town, provided a compelling opportunity for an operator to meet this demand. "The site itself provides an excellent setting for a new care facility, benefiting from stunning views over the Cotswolds Hills and being situated adjacent to the North Cotswolds Hospital” l

After several months of consultations, Gloucester City Council planners are expected to consider the scheme in the near future l But not everyone is happy with the scheme. The Environment Agency says it objects to the proposal for the site, known as the Old Log Pond. The Agency says a section of Whaddon Brook crosses the site to outfall into the canal and it wants the reinstatement of the culvert to benefit the local flood regime.
