Planning & Development Potential
Prior Approval applications (EPF/1243/19 and EPF/1244/19) were granted on 19th July 2019, for change of use and conversion of the entire rear office to residential to provide 5 residential apartments (3 x 1 bed unit and 2 x 2 bed units) totalling 2,887 sq.ft.
Subsequently, a detailed planning consent was granted on 22nd January 2020 under reference: EPF/2851/19 for the external refurbishment of the building including replacement windows and cladding.
A planning application was refused on 11th October 2019 under reference: EPF/2032/19 for the creation of a third floor to provide a single 2 bedroom residential unit. The application was refused due to the scale and bulk of the proposed floor having a negative impact on the Epping Conservation Area and the adverse impact the development would have on the Epping Forest Special Area of Conservation.
There might be potential to address these concerns and improve on the current floor space subject to obtaining the necessary consents. All planning enquiries should be made to Epping Forest Borough Council on 01992 546 000.
The property will be sold freehold with the existing tenants remaining in-situ.
Offers are invited in excess of £2,000,000 for the freehold interest.
The property is elected for VAT.
