Knotweed thwarts Sale…

Despite the attack of Japanese Knotweed invading a substantial part of the grounds, the former YWCA hostel in Central Tonbridge was successfully sold by private treaty to a North London based private developer by Hurford Salvi Carr New Homes and Land Department.

Characterful buildings in Central Tonbridge do not often come to market and the former hostel received a wide market appeal but the presence of Japanese Knotweed thwarted many interested parties.  In recent years the building has offered a support office for charities involved in Women’s Welfare in Kent and a crèche and playground at the rear.

The condition of the property had been significantly deteriorated by the presence of the Knotweed and access to the site presented a difficult challenge to the purchasers, however, an exciting plan has been developed for the next phase of the properties evolution.
