Mr D Morris
A Freehold commercial unit ( 2816 Sq Ft ) occupying a fantastic position adjacent to Whiteladies Road.
The unit is a single storey with pitched roof and mezzanine level which has operated as a successful garage / car mechanics for many years and is now for sale due to retirement.
Sold with vacant possession.
The property is situated on Hampton Lane immediately behind the busy and vibrant Whiteladies Road. A vast array of local retailers, restaurants, bars and pubs are all within walking distance whilst excellent transport links allow easy access to Bristol City Centre. University of Bristol and the Bristol Royal Infirmary are both within a mile.
There is scope for a residential, student or commercial development subject to consents.
Interested parties should note that similar adjacent buildings have been developed over two storeys.
We understand no planning has been previously sought.
Please refer to planning appraisal.
The property is suitable for continued commercial use - B1 / B2

The existing building has established the siting, footprint, scale, form, mass and height of development on this site, and given that it sits within the curtilage of a Grade II listed building and a conservation area, the Council is unlikely to oppose its demolition provided any replacement building preserves the setting of the listed building (i.e. Does not make the relationship any worse, or better, improves it) and enhances the character and appearance of this part of the conservation area.
The adjacent site (no. 81 Whiteladies Road) has a dismissed appeal for the replacement of the existing single-storey building with a three-storey building. That decision has established that a three-storey building in this location is unacceptable for heritage and townscape reasons and will be an important material consideration in the assessment of any formal application for this adjoining site (and others).
It is considered that the site does have potential for a taller building but this is likely to restricted to a height of 1.5 storey with a gable roof form, to appear in keeping with the height/form/massing of the mews-style buildings at the southern end of the lane. It is recommended that heritage gain is delivered as part of any redevelopment, such as reducing the height at the western end (below the existing height) to off-set any increase in height (above the existing building) at the eastern end, and sensitively rebuilding the ends of the curtilage listed boundary walls where they have been repaired inappropriately.
There is policy protection for the existing employment use (Use Class B2) and evidence that the existing use is inappropriate/having a harmful impact upon the residential amenity of the area in order to justify its loss for employment use will be necessary. The delegated report for the refused application at no. 81 Whiteladies Road identifies this location to be suitable for small-sized accommodation (such as flats) and student housing as opposed to family housing. Equally, land uses within the B1 use class would be likely to be supported, particularly given that the existing site is currently in employment use.
Full ppa report to follow.
An indication of the seller's current minimum acceptable price at auction. The guide price or range of guide prices is given to assist consumers in deciding whether or not to pursue a purchase. It is usual, but not always the case, that a provisional reserve range is agreed between the seller and the auctioneer at the start of marketing. As the reserve is not fixed at this stage and can be adjusted by the seller at any time up to the day of the auction in the light of interest shown during the marketing period, a guide price is issued. This guide price can be shown in the form of a minimum and maximum price range within which an acceptable sale price (reserve) would fall, or as a single price figure within 10% of which the minimum acceptable price (reserve) would fall. A guide price is different to a reserve price (see separate definition). Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.
The seller's minimum acceptable price at auction and the figure below which the auctioneer cannot sell. The reserve price is not disclosed and remains confidential between the seller and the auctioneer. Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.
Please be aware all purchasers are subject to a £1000 + VAT (£1,200 inc VAT) buyer's premium which is always payable upon exchange of contracts whether the sale is concluded before, during or after the auction date.
