Next up…we’ve got the news! For homeowners!
The original piece below is from the Eastern Daily Press, but has been altered for arguably comedic purposes. The original article can be found here:
House hunters looking for a spacious country getaway with easy access to the A11, picturesque environs and explosives storage capabilities need look no further.
With nearly 42 acres of Ministry of Defence-approved space in the heart of the Suffolk countryside, this former munitions storage area near RAF Mildenhall is on the market now.
The site’s sales particulars, produced by agents, GVA, state: “The site was designed and built specifically for the storage of ammunition in 1955.
Who doesn’t love the 50s?
“Prior to this, the site was in agricultural use. We understand that the site has been disused for the last 20 years,” the GVA continued.
Who doesn’t love agriculture?
While there is no guide price set, buyers will be getting plenty for their money.
Its 17 hectare site includes 18 disused buildings, loading and unloading bays and water reservoirs serviced by tarmac and concrete roadways.
Situated around two miles north of the base and complete with its own Government-owned right of way access track, the site is easily accessible.
And with 40 years of use as a store for munitions for bombers flying out of RAF Mildenhall and its own chain-linked fence, buyers can be sure the site is extremely secure.
Any buyer would have to hook the site back up to electricity, water and telephone, which were previously disconnected.
And that just makes it all the more exciting!
But they can be sure that the site is safe, with an asbestos management survey and explosive ordinance clearance certificate available.
Any development of the site will be open to the MOD’s ‘standard clawback provision’ for the next 20 years.
If the provisions are triggered, the buyer must pay the MOD the equivalent of 50pc of any uplift in value. Woohoo!
Anyone interested in buying the site must submit their tender no later than noon on February 27.
