The site of a former Mazda dealership in East Lancashire has been sold for an undisclosed figure.

Perrys Colne Mazda announced it was closing in February and the site in North Valley Road has been sold to Portland of Bawtry Limited.

The property comprises a freestanding, compact, single-storey showroom, a separate workshop facility, and a four-storey mill building used for parts and general storage.

The total accommodation spans 23,600 sq ft and the site area is 0.79 acres.

The new owners have redevelopment plans for a drive-thru which will include EV charging, subject to planning permission.

The site is in a prominent location in Colne, less than half a mile away from the M65 motorway.

Alice Bennett, associate in the Savills Automotive team, says: “We are delighted to complete the sale of this site supporting Perrys Motor Sales disposal programme.

"Portland of Bawtry Limited have exciting redevelopment plans for the site and we are looking forward to seeing the new site in action.”

The purchaser was represented by Ben Flint of Flint Real Estate.
