Full description

Constructed in the early 1960s the building was used as a police station up until a few years ago. The overall plot size measures 0.198 acres. (edged in red on the attached plan) and is offered, subject to planning permission with full vacant possession.

The building is rated as a "Police Station and premises" which is a Sui Generis use and planning categories are listed under the Town and Country Planning (Use Classes) Order and a Police Station is known as a Sui Generis use, meaning it does not fall within any particular categoryuse class. Therefore the property requires planning permission to be used for any other purpose.

The benefit from a Sui Generis use, is that usually the building has to be allocated a use and so in effect it starts as a blank canvas. Usually planners will consider most suitable uses, from residential to offices to medical use (such as Doctors, Dentists etc.) but numerous others are often considered.

Accommodation is set over two floors with ample parking space to the front of the property and a number of out buildings to the rear of the building. The property further benefits from a good size rear garden with mature trees.
