The property benefits from planning permission, granted on 17th December 2019 under reference DM/18/2311, for the redevelopment of the property to create 17 residential apartments (7 x 1 bed and 10 x 2 bed units) totalling 11,738 sq.ft. and a new ground floor commercial unit of 1,313 sq.ft.

All units are for private sale, however the planning consent is subject to a Section 106 agreement which obligates for a financial contribution of £74,210 as well as viability reassessment obligations. No CIL liabilities apply.

residential units are constructed by way of converting the existing 1st floor space plus extensions.

As per the planning permission, the proposed residential units will be accessed via a new self-contained entrance to the rear of the existing shops at ground floor level.


The property will be sold on a freehold, subject to the Seller retaining the all of the ground floor commercial space (existing and proposed) on new 999 year lease.
