Key Points

  • Prominent commercial unit fronting the very busy Sandford Road
  • Suitable for a range of uses (Class E planning use)
  • 110.55 sq m (1,190 sq ft)

  • Summary



    The property comprises a single storey detached building previously used as a convenience store. A small office/store is located to the rear of the property which leads out to a small external yard area. PLEASE NOTE: A planning application has recently been submitted to amend the forecourt parking area located at the front of the building. This will create a self-contained driveway for a separate bungalow located to the rear. The attached plan illustrates this proposed arrangement and shows the commercial unit’s demised area (marked with a red outline). The revised parking area will provide 7 car parking spaces together with allocated bicycle and motorbike parking.


    The property is located in an excellent position fronting the very busy Sandford Road (A351). The A351 provides principle access to Wareham, The Isle of Purbeck and Swanage. The last manual traffic count (2017), showed over 20,000 average annual daily vehicle movements for this section of the A351 (source: https://roadtraffic.dft.gov.uk/). Sandford is an established residential location which is located approximately 1.5 miles to the east of Wareham Town Centre.
