Kent Messenger Ad: Featured Property - September 2014

9 Sittingbourne Road is an excellent site of 0.32 acres considered suitable for a variety of uses subject to Planning being granted. The property, located in the centre of Maidstone, currently has D1 use with potential for offices or residential conversion. Situated on the corner of Sittingbourne Road and Holland Road, this property is a short walking distance from the town centre and well located for easy access to the M20 and surrounding road networks. 

The approximate Gross Internal Area of all buildings is 6,437 sq ft with the main building having a Net Internal Area of approximately 3,000 sq ft plus basement. This property is ideal for Conversion or Redevelopment. Currently owned by Kent County Council, this building has become surplus to requirements and is being offered for sale on an unconditional or conditional (subject to planning) basis. It is considered suitable for a variety of uses subject to the necessary planning.

The property has been used as an Adult Education Centre (Class D1) with ancillary offices and most recently as a specialist school. We consider that the property offers a considerable scope for a variety of uses including the following:

Residential: We consider tht the main building could be converted to provide a number of apartments or demolished to create a clear site capable of accommodating a number and variety of dwellings. Please note that there is a restrictive covenant which does not permit any building to be constructed on the strip of land 15 feet wide along the site's western boundary adjoining the doctor's surgery between points A and B as shown on the OS plan

Commercial: We consider that the property lends itself for use as a D1 day nursery, offices or other commercial uses to take advantage of the existing building and excellent prominent position it occupies. Access: Kent County Council Highways have been consulted and have indicated that the preference would be for access via St Luke's Avenue rather than onto Sittingbourne Road. In addition it should be noted that a refuse collection point should be provided within 20 metres of the highway. These comments are made subject to considering full plans and details.
