Key Details

Description

The subject site comprises, a former builder’s yard and premises, which are offered with Vacant possession.

Somerset Joinery currently occupy approximately 10,000 sqft of the former joinery premises on a licence arrangement with vacant possession available on short notice and a tenant occupies 24 Monmouth St on an AST (2 months’ notice).

The adjacent shop premises and residential properties fronting Monmouth Street are vacant, available and ready for conversion.

There are 3 residential properties (17-21 Polden Street) to the rear of the site which have sitting tenants in them (Old Pollards Employees) – Attempts will be made to accommodate these tenants. The property is mainly a cleared site but with some existing buildings still in situ. Planning permission will be required for the demolition of existing buildings and some contamination land surveys will need to be carried out prior to any development of the site.

The property has a 2 vehicular accesses off Monmouth Street, one to the residential dwelling 24 Monmouth Street and one alongside the old Pollard offices. The 3 residential houses at 17 – 21 Polden Street, are accessed via the one-way road system.

The historic doctor’s surgery at 22 Monmouth Street, comprising a 5 bed house, garden and garages, physically projects in a ‘U’ shape into the freehold ownership of the Pollard premises and the house is a “Listed Building”. This has recently been bought by a third party through Tamlyns. This may be available to purchase by separate arrangement with the new owner.

Any future use (other than the existing use) may need to deal with any major highway considerations.

Planning

Currently listed as an Workshops, Retail, Offices storage with Hard surface and as B2/B3/B8 usage. Clearly there is enormous potential for development/re-development and there is also scope for a variety of potential future uses of this substantial site, such as residential/retail/leisure plus business and commercial uses or for a scheme involving multiple uses.

Any planning or re-development proposal will require justification to the Local Authority and include extensive consultation with the Council, Highways Authority and many others. Please note this site is For Sale without Planning permission but with Vacant Possession.

We believe that there will be a presumption in favour of partial or wholescale re-development of the premises but prospective purchasers will need to make their own investigations as to future use to the planning department of the local authority.
