Residential Development Opportunity
Upon Instructions of
The Joint Administrators
- Freehold site with development potential (subject to planning)
The property comprises a single, steel portal frame, warehouse unit and an adjacent office unit. The property was previously used for the storage and wholesale of fruit and vegetables.
The property is well suited to residential redevelopment and permission has previously been sought for the development of 22 flats on the site. Whilst this application was refused, the refusal notice suggests that the site is suitable for residential redevelopment, with the principal basis of refusal being the density and design.
The Poole, Bournemouth and Christchurch conurbation is the largest built up area within Dorset on the South Coast lying approximately 25km west of Southampton and the junction of the M3 and M27 motorways.
The property is located on the north-west side of the junction of Seabourne Road with Norwood Place, and immediately west of the junction of Seabourne Road with Cromwell Road. Seabourne links with the A35 Christchurch Road approximately ¼ mile to the north-west. The A35 links Christchurch in the east with Boscombe and then Bournemouth to the west. Pokesdown railway station lies immediately to the north of the junction of Seabourne Road with Christchurch Road.
The building is located in a predominantly residential area, albeit there are various commercial uses fronting on to Seabourne Road including a Co-Op One Stop (directly opposite the subject property) and a number of other retail uses intermittently along Seabourne Road.
A number of sites in the immediately vicinity have been redeveloped for residential purposes to include a scheme directly opposite the subject and a further development of flats along Cromwell Road.
A planning application for the development of 22 x one bedroom flats (Application No: 7-2018-1589-O) has been refused. However the refusal notice suggests that the site is suitable for residential redevelopment, with the principal basis of refusal being the density and design.

By setting a proxy bid, the system will automatically bid on your behalf to maintain your position as the highest bidder, up to your proxy bid amount. If you are outbid, you will be notified via email so you can opt to increase your bid if you so choose.
If two of more users place identical bids, the bid that was placed first takes precedence, and this includes proxy bids.
Another bidder placed an automatic proxy bid greater or equal to the bid you have just placed. You will need to bid again to stand a chance of winning.
