Full description

DESCRIPTION
Riverside Development is in the town of Thurso in Caithness. The property consists of an interconnected warehouse complex with ancillary office accommodation. Parking is available along riverside road as well as in designated council operated car parks.

The Caithness Local Plan favours residential development in this area. It seems likely that the Planning Authority would favour a flatted development of no more than 2 storey height. It is likely that the site could accommodate 8-10 units, allowing for the ancillary car parking etc. The remainder of the area would be apportioned to at least 15 car parking spaces (180m2), in line with Local Authority requirements. The Local Planning Authority would also give consideration to retail or warehouse use.

LOCATION
The property has a frontage onto Riverside Road overlooking the River Thurso, and is within walking distance of the town centre and all main amenities. In the nearby vicinity there are Retirement Flats, a Chip Shop and a Glass Blowing Studio, Retail Furniture Showrooms and the British Legion. The town has a good mix of traditional shops, cafes, bars and restaurants, the well-known River Thurso flows through the town attracting salmon fishers from all over. There is an attractive sandy beach with spectacular views across to Orkney and Dunnet Head.
