Sheppey Way, Sittingbourne, ME9
A fairly substantial parcel of land occupied by a variety of warehouse / factory buildings, most recently occupied by Floplast. It is our understanding that the premises originally comprised an Engineering and Vehicle Maintenance Depot, purpose built for and occupied by British Telecom. The principal building, centrally located within the site, of masonry construction beneath a multiple pitched roof arranged in a number of bays with a corrugated fibre cement covering, incorporating 'north light' single skin glazing, thus benefiting from very good natural light. The building incorporates office accommodation to various areas using lightweight partitioning including some purpose built two storey offices to the front of the building, including a reception area. Large sliding metal doors to the north elevation and a smaller shutter door to the south elevation provide commercial access to the building. A late 1990's lean-to warehouse extension was added to the rear of the principal building comprising of steel frame construction clad and roofed in coated profile metal sheeting, lined internally and insulated. Access to this is available by way of electrically operated shutter doors at the south and north elevations of the overall building. The rear northern part of the site is occupied by a detached building which appears to be a former Vehicle Maintenance Workshop of brick construction beneath a corrugated fibre cement roof. Commercial access is by way of several folding shutter doors. There is internal ancillary accommodation to the ground and first floors providing a mess room together with w/c's. Adjacent to this former workshop, is a late 1990's detached warehouse building with clear span steel frame construction, entirely faced and roofed in coated profile metal cladding, lined internally and insulated. Commercial access is principally available by way of an electrically operated roller shutter door in the front elevation. The entire site is securely fenced and gated with the majority of the external areas hard surfaced. The property also benefits from a Reservation to Grant consent, subject to signing an agreed Section 106 agreement, for the demolition of existing buildings and the erection of 42 dwellings with all matters reserved for future consideration. We therefore consider that the site would be of interest to commercial occupiers with the comfort that it has future residential development potential.
