Viewing by arrangement with Clive Emson Auctioneers

An exciting opportunity to acquire a freehold storage yard extending to 0.65 hectares (1.60 acres) situated less than two miles from Horley town centre and less than a mile by foot from Gatwick Airport or three miles by car.

Currently used as a commercial vehicle depot and haulage contractors yard, the site has also been allocated for residential use within the Reigate and Banstead Local Plan through its inclusion within Policy SEH4, adopted 26th September 2019, and the Core Strategy Plan adopted 2014 and reviewed 2019.

The land is considered suitable for residential development as part of a wider area of land surrounding the site that could incorporate in the region of 75 dwellings.

With access along The Close from Balcombe Road (B2036) much of the site has a hardstanding surface and comprises open plan storage area with mains electricity and water. The site is secured by metal fencing along the perimeter and automated gate.

Along with potential for re-development, the site has an established use for industrial processes within Class E of the Town and Country Planning (Use Classes) Order 1987 (as amended) and would suit continued use for this purpose. It is also considered that the site may be suitable for a wide variety of uses and may be ideally located for use as airport parking, subject to all necessary consents being obtainable.
