The City of Truro is situated in mid Cornwall and is the principal retail, business and administrative centre for the county offering a wide range of retail, business, leisure and education amenities. There are varied employment opportunities within the city and of note County Hall is within close proximity to the site with The Royal Cornwall Hospital and Truro College a little further away. It has a population of approximately 20,000 and a significantly wider catchment area which increases significantly during the summer tourist season.

Truro benefits from a railway station on the Penzance to Paddington main line offering approximately hourly trains to London Paddington during the day. The A30 lies approximately 6 miles to the north providing predominantly dual-carriageway access to both east and west of the county and the M5 at Exeter. Newquay Airport, providing connections to London and other national and seasonal international destinations, is approximately 15 miles away.

The property comprises a level site extending to approximately 1.75 hectares (4.32 acres) (gross). It currently accommodates two large dated industrial/warehouse buildings which extend to a total gross internal area of approximately 6,758 m2 (72,745 ft2) . Further detail regarding the existing buildings can be provided upon request.

The site is situated within walking distance of Truro city centre adjacent to Truro Station and car park and surrounded by mainly residential use including the recent ‘The Sidings’ development.
