The Magnet Hotel for years served it's patrons who worked at the former Steel Works nearby. This building lies in very close proximity to the Freeport. Contractor accommodation will certainly be in demand and the Magnet Hotel is due a new lease of life with plans passed to convert the former Public House into 7 self-contained apartments. This lot provides an excellent investment opportunity as the Freeport develops. Planning reference: Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council: R/2020/0566/FF In March 2021, as part of the Spring Budget, Tees Valley was announced as one of the first places to get Freeport status under the new Government policy to create Freeports across the country. Covering 4,500 acres, the Teesside Freeport is the largest in the UK. To put the size into perspective, it is equivalent to 2,550 football pitches. It will create more than 18,000 jobs and provide a £3.2billion boost to the local economy over the next five years.
