The former Belfast home of a private healthcare group, an established stone quarry and a 12-acre site next to Ulster University's Coleraine campus have gone on the market.

Letterbratt Quarry in Plumbridge, Co Tyrone extends to 69 acres and is located 16 miles north of Omagh and 10 miles south east of Strabane.

The property mainly consists of "rough agricultural land", according to property agency Osborne King which has listed the site.

It has been operating as a quarry for over 50 years. The site also has a range of crushing and screening equipment which is included in the sale.

The site was granted planning consent in 1979 for "general quarry work with erection of new offices and weighbridge".

Meanwhile, at 352 Lisburn Road in Belfast, the former healthcare clinic has gone on the market for £550,000.

The property is a red-brick detached building which was formerly a residential dwelling, but was converted into medical consulting rooms for the 352 Healthcare Group, which is also the owner of Kingsbridge Clinic further up the Lisburn Road.

It contains five consulting rooms, a reception and waiting areas with staff facilities.

According to CBRE, which has listed the property, the site would be suitable "to a variety of uses including medical consulting rooms".

It adds the building, which is close to public transport networks including bus and train services, could be converted into offices or brought back to residential use, subject to necessary consents.

CBRE has also listed Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council's Atlantic Link Enterprise Campus - a 12-acre site next to Ulster University's Coleraine campus which is seeking a tenant, preferably a "data heavy" name.

The advertisement comes two months after the council launched a development plan for Atlantic Link Enterprise Campus in Coleraine. It said then it was seeking tenants after a year of talking to as many as 250 companies about their headquarter requirements.

The close-to-vacant 12-acre site on the Portstewart Road in Coleraine was designated in 2014 as an 'enterprise zone', where companies would benefit from favourable tax incentives and planning arrangements.

Development began when anchor tenant 5NINES opened a major data centre on the site last year.

It's close to the first landing-point for Project Kelvin, the underwater high-speed communications link-up between Northern Ireland and the US. While the area is already home to major employers like food giant Kerry Group, Armstrong Medical and electronics maker AVX, the council is hoping the park will help it draw more inward investment.

Other developmental opportunities on the market include the sale of a one-acre site two miles from Belfast city centre on 7-9 Ballygomartin Road. CBRE says the site "may be suitable for residential development subject to planning".

The lands are situated 100 metres from the junction with the Woodvale Road. Directly opposite the land is Woodvale Park, a large area of green open space.

The surrounding area is mainly residential use with some leisure uses. A Tesco store is also within close proximity.

The site was previously occupied by one or more large Victorian buildings, according to CBRE. These buildings have now been demolished "to leave a relatively level site".

CBRE advises that the site may also be suitable for development of a nursing home subject to planning. It is on the market for £250,000.
