The village of Hillside is located to the north of Montrose and benefits from local shopping, post office and primary education facilities. Montrose is an attractive town approximately mid-way between Dundee and Aberdeen on the north east coast. Montrose has a useful range of local services including shops, hotels, restaurants, primary and secondary schooling, a Medical Centre and a mainline railway station. Over the years Montrose has become popular with commuters to Aberdeen with access via the A90 or A92.
Aberdeen International Airport is 40 miles away with regular flights to London and a range of European destinations.
Following a review by NHS Tayside, the remaining grounds and buildings at Sunnyside Hospital have been declared surplus and are thus being offered for sale.
Sunnyside Hospital was originally founded in 1781 by Susan Carnegie of Charleton.The site includes a number of large listed buildings including the Main hospital building (B Listed), Carnergie House (C Listed) and Booth House (C Listed). A number of buildings have been identified for demolition and the relevant permissions have been applied for to allow demolition.
Covering an approximate total of 26 hectares (64.2 acres) the site consists of a mixture of large period buildings that encompassed the original facilities, a mixture of more modern buildings providing ancillary services and open space including the tree lined playing fields and orchard. The site has gradually been closed down with some original areas of ground sold off for residential development in the early 2000's.
TOWN AND COUNTRY PLANNING
Sunnyside Hospital is identified within the current adopted Angus Local Development Plan (2009) as an Opportunity Site and the release of the site for development is required to establish new uses for existing buildings and grounds. Prior to the closure of the site Angus Council prepared a Development Brief (2002).
NHS Tayside commissioned Jones Lang LaSalle to prepare a Development Framework for the former Sunnyside premises. Previously a Development Framework was prepared by Angus Council in advance of an earlier site disposal. This brief identified a number of existing buildings to be retained and reused together with areas identified for redevelopment.
A new Local Development Plan is currently being prepared to replace the adopted Angus Council Local Plan Review 2009. The new Local Development Plan has now been published and identifies Sunnyside Hospital as a mixed use redevelopment opportunity with potential for up to 265 houses over the next local plan cycle.
Jones Lang LaSalle has prepared a Development Framework on behalf of NHS Tayside which identifies a variety of uses for the site combined with indications of potential demands for the site. Copies can be made available to interested parties by the selling agents.
Smith Scott Mullan Associates were the architects involved in the preparation of the Development Framework and they would be happy to discuss any architectural queries regarding the site.
Viewing is available by appointment - Please contact the sole agent Ballantynes to arrange a site visit.
