Residential Development Opportunity

Upon Instructions of

The Joint Administrators

  • Freehold site of 0.141 Acres (0.057 Hectares)
  • Development potential (subject to planning)

Description

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.

Location

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.

Planning

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.
