Five Acres letting opportunities

Forest of Dean District Council is looking for interested parties to occupy part of the new Community Sports Hub on the Five Acres site at Berry Hill. The development details and history can be accessed on the link below:

The Community Sports Hub refurbishment will be in phase I of the redevelopment and Hartpury University/ Hartpury College are due to have an outreach facility within the building.

As part of the acquisition of this site from Homes England, the Council is required to use the site for cultural, community, education, recreational and sporting uses and therefore we are looking for expressions of interest from these sectors, as well as a café operator for the ground floor.

Contact for expressions of interest - please email

Single rooms/offices and suites will be available with indicative lease terms as below:

  • 6 year term 
  • Market rent 
  • Rent review at 3 years
  • Parking 
  • Common area facilities e.g. WC’s kitchen

(More flexible options can be considered)
