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 MOT station comprises 2 single storey buildings arranged in an L-shape providing workshop and office accommodation. The remaining yard space has been sub-divided and is currently rented to separate tenants.
It was purchased by William Walter Churches ( known locally as Wally!} in the early 1960's...he was a well known 'jack of all trades!' The site has been used as a coal yard and haulage business and subsequently various sections were sub let to tenants.
The property is accessed via a lane from Whitchurch Road but we understand the deeds also contain a right of way document as he used the right of way from his home in Headley Road at the rear.
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.
HIGH YIELDING COMMERCIAL INVESTMENT OR DEVELOPMENT SITE SUBJECT TO CONSENTS
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.
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 – please refer to legal pack
Potential to develop further commercial units subject to consents.
