Residential Development Opportunity (With Planning Permission)
Miland House is situated within a highly sustainable town centre location on Rock Road, Keynsham. Keynsham is an affluent market town located approximately 3 miles east of Bristol town centre and 7 miles west of Bath. The town benefits from strong public transport links being served by both the A4 and A4174 (Avon Ring Road) providing direct access east of Bristol and west of Bath in under 20 minutes. Keynsham is a popular commuter town and has a resident population of circa 16,000 with a wider catchment of 840,000. The town has recently undergone a significant regeneration programme to enhance local employment and economic growth including; regeneration of Keynsham Town Hall and library, 118,000 sq ft of new build mixed use, refurbished multi storey car park and a new public square.
The site extends to approximately 0.294 acres (0.119 ha) on a level site. The property currently comprises a two storey office building of concrete construction and a separate, detached two storey residential property along with a parking area which is accessed directly from Ashton Way to the east of the office building. The site is bounded to the north by the publicly accessible Ashton Way Car Park, to the east by Ashton Way, to the west by Mayfield Road and to the south by Rock Road. The site is easily reached via public transport with a bus stop close by on Ashton Way and on the High Street. Keynsham Railway Station is a short walk from the property.
The site benefits from an outline planning consent granted 15th December 2016 for the erection of a building comprising a convenience store, 15 no. flats, and 1 no. maisonette following demolition of the existing office building and detached dwelling house (Ref: 16/03306/OUT). The planning consent does not include any requirement for affordable housing. The proposed development is designed as a part three, part two storey mixed-use scheme arranged as convenience store (Use Class A1) at ground floor with 15 no. flats and 1 no. maisonette over first and second floors (Use Class C3). The residential element benefits from 4 no. allocated parking spaces and cycle storage to the south west of the new building and accessed from Mayfields Road. Copies of the planning permission, schedule of accommodation, associated documents and technical reports are available in the Information Pack. A secure cycle storage area for 16 no. bicycles is accessible via a public footpath which runs from Rock Road and along the main building’s western elevation.
