Maughan Mitchell were excited to be involved in this historic building, on Bridgewater Docks, which Bowrings operated from for almost 100 years, prior to a closure due to a fire at the site.

Following the site’s closure, it was de-commissioned, stripped out for demolition, with only the yard occupied, let to a third party.

After detailed discussions with the Valuation Office, we were able to get the buildings deleted from the Rating List, from the date of de-commissioning. The remaining land was separately assessed, for tenant to be charged rates.

Rate Savings to our client amounted to approximately £150,000.
