INVESTMENT | Multi Let Retail and Residential Investment


Bognor Regis is an affluent and popular resort town in West Sussex ideally
located on the south coast approximately 55 miles south west of London 24
miles west of Brighton and six miles south east of Chichester.

The town benefits from excellent transport links with easy access to the A259
which links Bognor Regis to the A27 (seven miles north of the town) and
therefore the wider national road network.

Bognor Regis Railway Station offers direct and regular services to London
Victoria with a fastest time of 1 hour and 40 minutes. The station provides
regular services to Brighton with a journey time of approximately 45 minutes
and Chichester is accessed within 15 minutes both requiring one change.


We understand that the premises benefit from Class A1 Retail Use and C3 Residential Use within the Use Classes Order 1987 (as amended).


We understand that the property is elected for VAT and if so that any sale can be treated by way of a Transfer of a Going Concern (TOGC).


The property comprises a parade of four self-contained retail units at ground
floor located at the northern end of London Road which is considered the
prime retail pitch in Bognor Regis.

Rear access is available via a yard accessed from Sudley Road. This also provides
access to the four maisonettes above, which have been sold off on long leases
with proximately 70 years to expiry.
