Property Description

Full description

Opportunity to purchase a parcel of land measuring approximately 0.67 acres, situated to the rear of a rank of houses on Whitchurch Road and bordered to the East by The Malago river. The site is currently used as a commercial yard and MOT station but offers potential for a variety of different uses, subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents.

Location - The site is situated to the rear of numbers 33-37 Whitchurch Road with access currently being provided by a lane to the right of number 53 Whitchurch Road. The site is bordered to the East by the Malago river and adjoins a lane to the North West which provides access to the garages at the rear of numbers 14-30 Headley Road.

Description - The site comprises a parcel of land measuring approximately 0.67 acres that is currently used as a working garage/MOT station with additional commercial and storage yards.

The remaining yard space has been sub-divided and is currently rented to separate tenants.

Potential Uses - The site offers potential for a variety of different commercial uses, subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents. There may also be potential for residential redevelopment and the current owners have submitted a pre-application enquiry to Bristol City Council with a view to redeveloping the site to provide 9 houses. A full copy of the feedback from the Council is available upon request but the main issues raised are the existing access to the site and the potential loss of employment.
