POSTED ON22nd October 2020
Located at the extreme southern end of Fambridge Road adjacent to the River Crouch is former shellfish farm that has since been used for a variety of industrial processes.
The planning register notes that the southern end units have been used for industrial purposes and as such now fall under planning category B2.
Made up of a variety of older buildings of varying condition, with the shellfish tanks still in situ to the northern end.
The site has a concrete crush/type 1 surface with an access road from the main Fambridge Road.
Main Unit: 2,260 sq. ft. (210 sq. m.) Former Shellfish Bays: 5,889 sq. ft. (547 sq. m.) Total Site: 0.82 acres
The site and buildings have been in existence since the mid 1960’s when planning permission was granted for a shellfish packing station.
Since then it’s been used for a variety of uses including planning consent for a boatyard.
In 2011 the Council issued a Certificate of Lawful use for “the excavation and completion of the access driveway” as a result of this it was considered by the Council that this was commencement of the boatyard consent.
Furthermore the Council considered that the boatyard permission was to allow any B2 (general industrial use) within the southern section of the buildings amounting to 216 sq.m.
Interested parties must make their own enquiries of Rochford District Council and satisfy themselves of the planning permission and that the site and buildings satisfy their requirements.
