A 0.09 acre site in the village with planning consent for 2 dwellings
The subject property sits at the eastern end of Vicarage Road a short distance from the main village centre, and within the settlement boundary. Motorway connections are excellent, with Junction 4 of the M20 motorway approximately 2 miles to the south, and Junction 2 of the M2 motorway approximately 3 miles to the north. Halling train station sits approximately a third of a mile to the west, providing services into London St. Pancreas with a journey time of 50 minutes. As such the area is becoming more popular with commuters. The surrounding area is characterised by residential development with open space and the recreation ground immediately to the rear. Halling provides for the usual village amenities, with development well underway creating the new St. Peters Village south east of Halling, providing for new facilities including a primary school and retail provision. The development has also led to the creation of a new road bridge over the River Medway improving the infrastructure links for Halling.
The property comprises a rectangular site upon which is a single storey building used as a Baptist church. The building is believed to have been constructed circa 1898 and provides for a gross internal area of 1,472 sqft (136.73 sq.m). The site is level and currently includes an attractive garden area to the front. The current use of the site is as a church within Class D1, and may be considered suitable for number of alternative D1 uses.
However, under planning reference MC/16/3013 planning permission was granted on 4th September 2017 for the demolition of the existing Baptist church and the construction of a pair of three bedroom semi-detached dwellings and associated parking, with gardens to the front and rear. A copy of the planning consent together with architects drawings and the Title plan can be provided.
The site is visible from Vicarage Road, but access into the Chapel itself is by prior appointment. Please contact the agents.
