Land / Externally (including the building’s footprint)
Total site area is very approximately 0.47 acres and because the site has been designed and constructed so that the buildings occupy one side and corner of the site, towards the rear, there are significant open land areas to the front which have been used for car sales, staff and customer parking.
The site was originally developed as a bakery and the main industrial building took place in the late 1970’s and 1980’s. The main usage of the site is as car sales with allied car repair workshop and a small section of the built area has been given over to a carpet sales showroom. As required, the agents can provide further information on the usages of the site. In accordance with the Use Classes Order in Wales (from the 30 April 2021) and as part of the Town and Country Planning (Use Classes) Order 1987 as amended and The Town & Country Planning (General
Permitted Development) Order 1995 as amended, under the category Sui Generis it states that in effect there is a permitted change of use from Motor Vehicle Sales to Class A1. Class A1 (Shops) includes shop, retail warehouses, post offices, ticket and travel agencies, sale of cold foods for consumption off premises, hairdressers, funeral directors, hire shops (of domestic or personal goods), dry cleaners and use of the washing or cleaning of clothes or fabrics (but not a launderette). Interested parties who wish to use the site under Use Class A1 should obtain their own professional advice and arrive at their own opinion as to the ability to change without permission to this Use. Fundamentally, being of a modern style industrial form of construction, there are many other warehousing / light manufacturing type uses which may also be acceptable (including complete redevelopment of the site), together with other alternative uses which may be regarded as suitable within such a central location, subject to the obtaining of planning and other statutory permissions. Interested parties need to undertake their own research.
Planning permission was granted in the past, Ref.035470, in outline for the construction of 5 dwellings upon this site, and it appears that a renewal of this permission was granted by Application No.044671, dated the 12th of May 2008. Once again, interested parties need to satisfy themselves as to the accuracy of this information, but copies of planning documentation relevant to this approximate date can be provided by the agent on request.
Interested parties should enquire further to the agents.
The building has a rateable value of £33,500, and interested parties should speak to the Local Authority to establish the actual rates payable.
