The site is located in the coastal town of Minehead in the County of Somerset. The property is located in an established industrial estate to the south east of the centre of the town. There is a mix of business/commercial uses upon the estate and, in more recent times, the periphery of the estate has seen several large food stores, a veterinary practice and a garden centre. The local road networks have been improved over the years to absorb increased traffic use. The eastern side of the town is served by “Seaward Way”, a dedicated spur road that links to the main A39 which runs broadly east to meet the M5 motorway at Taunton.
The property is a former oil distribution site. It is circa 0.276 ha (0.682 acres) in size and is generally level and broadly rectangular. It sits at the corner of Mart Road and Vulcan Road. The site’s principal access is from Mart Road with a secondary access to Vulcan Road. The yard is bounded by secure fencing and the majority of the yard area is surfaced with concrete. There is a single storey building offering office space, toilets and a messroom. All plant and machinery and other fittings associated with the former use are not included and will be removed from site prior to sale.
The offices on the site are of a semi-permanent structure and extend to circa 1,080 sqft (100 sqm). The space offers some general and private office areas together with WCs and a mess room.
The area is covered by Somerset West and Taunton Council. As far as is determined, the site is not covered with any specific planning policies although it is clear that this is an area where employment uses are encouraged. There are several “quasi-retail” uses within the area thus it is apparent that the local planners have permitted departures from any general industrial planning use classes. All interested parties should make their own enquiries to the appropriate planning department(s) at www.somersetwestandtaunton.gov.uk .
It is understood that main water, electricity and drainage are all connected to the property.
