A Freehold site of 2.7 acres that has until recent times operated as a successful abattoir but is now offered with vacant possession.
The site is approached via a long driveway with car parking for 20 + vehicles.
At the rear of the site is the main commercial building ( refer to existing floor plans and description below ) and additional paddock ( refer to site plan )
The main property is of portal frame construction set beneath a pitched steel profile roof providing 10% natural roof lights. There are two dock loading doors. The main warehouse has a concrete floor and has been internally subdivided to provide
working areas and refrigeration. There is a lean-to extension previously used as a holding pen for livestock. There is a two storey flat roof extension which provides a ground floor butchery room and first floor offices.
Warehouse - 6,566 Sq Ft
Holding Pens - 2,293 Sq Ft
FF Office - 1,690 Sq Ft
Total - 10,549 Sq Ft
The site is located approximately 1 mile west from Nailsea town centre in an area known at West End. Nailsea is located approximately 7 miles south west of Bristol. The property fronts on to Nailsea Wall which is an arterial route connecting to Clevedon which in turn provides access to J20 of the M5.

PLANNING APPRAISAL ( PPA )
In terms of residential development, the site is not in the Flood Plain (its Flood Zone 1) nor is it in the Green Belt. The site is previously developed land in the countryside and not within a defined settlement. The NPPF states that for the reuse of existing buildings for dwellings in more isolated locations, there is a requirement to significantly enhance the immediate setting, and be sensitive to the defining characteristics of the local area.
Given the industrial nature of the existing buildings in question, we would suggest that any scheme for redevelopment seeks to restore some local character by introducing replacement buildings on the site that reflect the traditional agricultural and vernacular character of buildings (i.e. a complex of converted barns) that feature strongly in the West End of Nailsea.
There is circa 1000 sq m of floor area on the site, this would comfortably translate into 4 detached dwellings on the site.
The overall approach in North Somerset is to safeguard sites in existing economic use for employment reuse. The site is previously developed land which would be suitable for reuse for business purposes. Where sites are no longer occupied the Council requires active marketing to demonstrate that this potential has been fully explored before allowing any change of use.
