The property has the following approximate
Net Internal Areas (NIA):

Lower ground floor 1,249 sq ft 116.08 sq m

Ground floor 3,039 sq ft 282.33 sq m

First floor 1,548 sq ft 143.79 sq m

Total 7,315 sq ft 679.60 sq m


The property was last used as a language school. This is a D1 use under the Use Classes Order 1987.

A new Use Classes Order (UCO) came into effect on 01.09.2020 under which most uses which were previously categorised as D1 under the former UCO were re-categorised into a new use class E covering commercial, business and service uses. Educational uses however were categorised in a new use class F1. Which also includes art galleries, museums, libraries, places of worship and law courts. We therefore believe the property to have an established F1 use under the current UCO. We anticipate the prospects of securing consent for use class E - which covers various uses to include offices, medical, indoor sport and day centre - to be reasonable.

Interested parties are strongly should advised to make their own planning enquiries and satisfy themselves in this regard.
