71 Fore Street, Bodmin – FREEHOLD

Listing ID: ID-150
October 13, 2014


Investment opportunity to purchase a site in the centre of Bodmin to build residential flats.

The site is located to the rear of 71 Fore Street. Existing professional offices were granted detailed planning approval for the construction of a two storey building which would house two one bedroom flats on the lower ground floor. The present consent then has offices on the ground floor, originally designed to interconnect with the main building but it is considered that an adaption of the scheme in co-operation with our client who owns the offices adjoining for the submission for an amendment to create two further flats on the ground floor should, subject to planning consent received favourable consideration. However a prospective purchaser must satisfy themselves over the prospect of this change by contacting the local Planning Authority.

There is an area of car park shown on the plan which would be retained by our clients used for the offices during the day but would be available for use by the occupiers of the flats out of business hours.

This is considered an ideal investment opportunity for a developer to either build flats for sale or to let. Although the consent was granted several years ago, nevertheless this is extant by initial work having started on the proposed site.

The site is located in the town centre of Bodmin, one of the oldest towns in Cornwall, situated just off the A30. Bodmin has many facilities including primary and secondary schools, a community hospital, doctor surgeries, dentists, supermarkets and a Wetherspoons pub. The railway station, Bodmin Parkway, is located on the outskirts approximately 4 miles south of the town. The market town of Wadebridge is close by as is the watersports havens of Rock and Polzeath on the North Cornish coast, approximately 14 miles away.

Bodmin is currently undergoing a large scale improvement of the town centre and there are a number of substantial private developments proposed. The main A30 arterial route has been made dual carriageway in the Temple area and is due to open in the summer of 2017.
