DESCRIPTION

New-build opportunities for commercial property at the gateway into Torquay



Location

Torquay is a popular coastal town in Devon with a population of 135,000. It has a two-hour drive time catchment population of 3.21 million and is located 16 miles south of Exeter. The property is located 2.4 miles north west of Torquay town centre and fronts the A380 South Devon Highway, connecting Torbay with the M5 at Exeter. The site is accessed from Orchard Way, which links with the A3022 (Riviera Way) via Newton Road and provides direct access to the town centre; Paignton and Newton Abbot. The recent £110m investment in the Highway has reduced significantly travel times both locally and regionally.



Additional Details

 

 



The site comprises 2.45 hectares (6.05 acres) of greenfield land. It is in a strategic gateway location to the north of Edginswell Business Park with a Vauxhall car showroom and office developments located on the adjacent sites. The subject site is suitable for a variety of uses. The site forms part of the Torquay Gateway (Edginswell) Future Growth Area and the land to the south and west is identified for large scale housing development, with ancillary services and provision including a new school. In addition, a new train station is proposed at Edginswell, within 5-10 minutes’ walk of the site. The site is capable of subdivision into a number of plots / units. The size, number and composition of which are yet to be determined.

The site benefits from a planning consent for bulky goods retail on part of the site. The Torbay Local Plan identifies the site as being part of the wider Torquay Gateway (Policy SDT3) which welcomes investment to deliver a range of uses such as employment space, leisure and local retail facilities to play a key role in contributing to the economic prosperity of Torbay. The site lies within the Edginswell Future Growth Area and new development here should support the delivery of employment generating uses. There is a history of permissions for a range of employment development uses on the site, which themselves provide some flexibility, acting as material considerations for the consideration of further development proposals (see P/2004/2118, P/2007/1743, P/2016/0955). The site also benefits from an extant planning consent for an A1 bulky goods retail use which is in effect. The local planning policy development plan framework supports proposals which have the potential to take advantage of the highly connected position of the site, stimulate employment in the immediate area and be complimentary to the rest of Torquay, including the town centre.
