Spratt and Son are delighted to bring to the market an opportunity to acquire a versatile commercial building benefiting from planning permission for redevelopment to create a ground floor retail/food outlet with a two bedroom apartment above.
The older style property, which has been historically used as workshop/storage space, is considered suitable for a variety of different users and presents an excellent opportunity for developers and investors or owner-occupiers seeking a versatile commercial space with a live/work environment.
Planning permission has been approved for a change of use to create a Hot Food Takeaway Shop (Use Class A5) on the ground floor, together with a self-contained two bedroom apartment arranged over first and second floors.
The property occupies a prominent location in Newland Street, just off Newland Road on the approach to Morrisons Supermarket. The property is situated within walking distance of Worthing’s Hospital, Mainline Railway Station and Town Centre. Nearby occupiers comprise a mix of residential dwellings, retailers and light-industrial users.
Viewing is strongly recommended.
The existing accommodation is arranged as follows:
Maximum overall depth 28’2
Maximum overall width 18’3
Approximate area 513 ft2
Maximum overall depth 27’8
Maximum overall Width 18’10

Planning Permission has been granted for redevelopment of the building under planning application no: AWDM/0419/18. The planning provides consent to create a ground floor Hot Food Takeaway together with a self-contained two bedroom flat on the first and second floors.
Whilst the property and location are extremely well suited to the current planning permission, it is our opinion that the property would suit a variety of different occupiers seeking retail, office or studio/workshop space.
