Ideally the entire site would be let to one occupier however it is possible to split the site into a variety of different configurations. Indicatively we have come up with the following options:

Option One: Letting of the Whole Site
Option Two: Letting of the front forecourt and showroom with separate letting of the rear Service Centre & Side Yard
Option Three: Letting of the Showroom into 3x Self Contained Retail Units with Parking, Letting of Side Yard & Letting of Rear Service Centre


Historically the site was a petrol filling station with the petrol tanks filled with concrete in 2014. For many years the site has traded as a Car Sales Site with associated Workshops at the rear. It is therefore presumed the site has Sui Generis use however interested parties are asked to make their own enquiries with the local planning authority prior to any inspection.
