The former bus garage in the centre of Ventnor occupies a landmark location but has lain empty and unused for some years. Planning Consent has now been obtained for demolition of the existing structure and replacement with an attractive scheme comprising two retail units on the ground floor and 10 two-bedroom flats, with the major benefit of six car parking spaces to the rear.
The site is situated in the heart of Ventnor's popular Victorian town centre and a short walk from the beach and seafront.
Once completed the shops and flats are considered ideal for resale into the local marketplace or, perhaps, retention as part of an income-producing letting portfolio.
Each retail unit will have a main sales/trading floor with separate ladies and gentlemen's staff cloakrooms with W.C.s
Each flat will have accommodation comprising: Entrance hall, living room, kitchen, two bedrooms and bathroom/W.C.
The new development will have the advantage of six car parking spaces.
Planning Permission has been granted by Isle of Wight Council under ref: 20/000091/FUL,
dated 13th October 2020, for demolition of bus depot and associated outbuildings; proposed three storey building to form two retail units on ground floor with 10 flats above to include accommodation within roof space; access off Pier Street, subject to conditions.
A copy of the Planning Consent and proposed plans will be available to download from the Clive Emson website or the Local Planning Authority website.
