Former bank sold following change of use

The freehold of a former bank in the village of Great Shelford, Cambridge has been sold following the granting of planning permission for change of use to a children’s day nursey, confirmed Eddisons now incorporating Barker Storey Matthews who acted as sole agent on behalf of the vendor.

The 2,617 sq ft (243 sq m) property at 3 High Green, Great Shelford has been sold to Shelford Day Nursey for an undisclosed sum.

The property is in the commercial centre of the popular village and was offered for sale with parking and immediate availability.

The sale was agreed subject to change of use which was granted by the local authority in February (2021) enabling the completion of the transaction last month (March).

Shelford Day Nursey confirmed that the renovation works at 3 High Green are well underway and that the 60-place nursery – which will specialise in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) – is scheduled to open in January 2022.
