The Opportunity

A unique opportunity to acquire a former United Reformed Church in the heart of Long Melford, suitable for a variety of uses, subject to planning. The site is being offered for sale on an unconditional basis, by Private Treaty.

The Site

The Grade II listed building was built in c.1724 and comprises a former United Reformed Church situated on Hall Street, in the centre of Long Melford. The building is bordered with gardens to the west, south and east of the property.

The accommodation includes a main church hall with pews, a balcony as well as a kitchen and bathroom facilities. There is also a library section, which is currently let to Suffolk Libraries (who have been served notice to vacate in March 2022).

The site would be suitable for a variety of uses, subject to appropriate planning applications.

The Manse House and land to the north of the property will not be included in the sale.

Location

Long Melford is a large village and civil parish in the Babergh district, in the county of Suffolk. It is on Suffolk’s border with Essex, just 3 miles (4.8 km) from Sudbury, approximately 16 miles (26 km) from Colchester and 14 miles (23 km) from Bury St Edmunds.

Long Melford lies just west of the A134 which runs from Bury St Edmunds to Sudbury and connects to the wider road networks.

The village benefits from a number of amenities including a post office, primary school, a medical centre as well as various local shops and restaurants.

Planning

The existing use of the building is a place of worship and therefore considered to be within the new Use Class F1 “learning and non-residential institutions’ which comprises “any use not including residential for the provision of education, display of works of art, museum, public library, public reading room, public hall, exhibition hall, for or in connection with public worship or religious instruction or as a law court”.

Use Class F1 was introduced 1st September 2020 and covers some of the some of the former Use Class of D1 (non-residential institutions).

No planning permission is required to move from a use within Class F1 to another Class within F1. However, any change of use class outside of Class F1 is not subject to benefit from Permitted Development and therefore will require full planning permission and may be subject to local authority restrictions.

Tenure

The site will be sold Freehold and all Title Plans and information are available from the selling agents.
