A well located development site close to Reading town centre with excellent road frontage and with mains services available.  Offering an opportunity for development of up to 8 Flats/Maisonettes (subject to consents).

For Sale as a whole by Private Treaty

About 268 sq.m (2,889 sq.ft) in total

Background
The property is offered for sale by the Trustees of Zoar Chapel following its closure and subsequent demolition and clearance of the site. The site offers clear opportunity for an attractive development to suit potential purchaser’s plans and accommodate the local market (subject to consents).

Location
The site is superbly located in a predominantly residential sector of Reading close to the University and shopping centre and within easy walking distance of the mainline railway station.

Planning
The former chapel on this site was demolished at the beginning of this year following a prior notification process with Reading Borough Council.

Planning Consultants acting for the Trust made a Pre-Application submission to Reading Borough Council. This was followed by a meeting with the officer assigned to the case. Subsequently a formal response was received. The Planning Consultants have provided further helpful advice.

The principle of a scheme for 6 to 8 flats/maisonettes (including a lower level as previously) would appear to be in line with policy. Prospective purchasers must make their own enquiries.

Planning Documents
Copies of the Pre-App responses from Reading Borough Council and the Consultants subsequent advice are available on request.

Offers
The vendors will consider offers submitted on an unconditional basis or on a subject to planning basis. If the latter it is important to stipulate clearly what assumptions are made regarding planning and timescale.

Offers are to be submitted in writing to the agents by Thursday 14 December 2017.
