Malt Lane, Bishops Waltham SO23

For Sale Freehold, D1 Use. Development Opportunity, STP Approx. 114 sq. m. (1227 sq.ft.) Parking Close proximity to Town Centre

The building is located on the B1277, Station Road, one of the main routes in to the village of Bishops Waltham; though its means of access is from Malt Lane to the rear. The village centre can be accessed via a short walk in an easterly direction, where local amenities including a post office, banks and various independent shops and cafes can be found. There is a good road network serving the area, with Winchester 10.3 miles to the North West and Eastleigh 8.4 miles in a westerly direction. There are regular bus services to both locations.

The property is a single storey building, which measures approximately 114 sq. m. (1227 sq. ft.) and is currently being used as physiotherapy clinic. The principal pedestrian access is from the rear (north) and there is no direct access on to Station Road other than crossing third party land.

The location is defined as Town/District/Local Centre Boundary (Policy DM7) within the Winchester District Local Plan Part 2 - Development Management and Site Allocations, which was adopted earlier this year. We understand that the building has been included in a redevelopment proposal to build a mixed-use scheme in conjunction with adjacent landowners which was recently aired at a public consultation. Our client does not have a agreement in place nor have they entered in to any formal negotiations with the developer in question. Prospective purchasers should note that the vendor will expect them to have obtained and carefully considered planning policies and the information provided prior to submitting their offer.

On 11 February 2013 the building was nominated by the Parish Council as an Asset of Community Value (ACV) and subsequently agreed by Winchester City Council (ref ACV4). Under the Localism Act 2011 (Section 95) local facilities that are considered to be of value to a community can be placed on a register to give local people a chance to bid for them before they are sold on the open market.

Notice of the intention to sell the property has subsequently served by our client to the City Council; therefore a moratorium period of six months has commenced allowing the nominating group the opportunity to prepare a bid for the building, during which time the property cannot be sold on the open market. The registration expires on 11 January 2018. Community Infrastructure Levy Winchester City Council adopted its Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) on the 8th January 2014 and it was brought into effect on the 7th April 2014. The property falls within CIL Charging Zone 3 (Market Towns and Rural Areas), equating to £96.54 per sq. m. on the net additional gross internal floor area of any development. Where buildings are demolished, the total of the demolished floor space will be off-set against the floor space of the new buildings, providing the buildings were in lawful use prior to demolition.
