Auctioneers Note
The parts of the building required for the residential conversion are included in the demise of the commercial leases, but represent an attractive development opportunity, should these areas become available by negotiation or vacant possession. Development could be implemented as a whole or in three distinct stages as and when possession is gained for each of the relevant parts.

Planning Permission has been granted by Isle of Wight Council under ref: 21/02244/FUL, dated 5th January 2024, for proposed conversion of part of ground floor and first and second floors to five flats, to include first and second floor extension, alterations to building fenestration and shop front, and relocation of existing air conditioning units (revised plans) (revised description) (revised site address) (re advertised application), subject to conditions.
