Bishops Down Road, Royal Tunbridge Wells, Kent TN4 8XJ


This development opportunity is situated on the North West edge of Royal Tunbridge Wells, virtually opposite the town`s Common, adjacent to the Spa Hotel with the Spa Golf Course beyond.

The site is accessed from Bishops Down Road, a no-through road, which in turn leads off Bishops Down (A264).

This is a highly regarded residential location predominately made up of large private houses, and close to the prestigious address of Nevill Park.

The historic Pantiles, old High Street and the town`s mainline train station are all a little over 1 km distant.


This site is a former car park in a secluded and wooded setting. There is a private, no through road, leading from the western end of Bishops Down Road.

The site area, subject to the planning application, extends to approximately 0.7 acres (0.28 ha)
