Overview

Rare opportunity to acquire a potential commercial development site with a good street frontage, in a prominent position attracting passing trade next to the Toll Clock Shopping Centre on North Road, the main thoroughfare through the centre of Lerwick, the surrounding area also being home to a mix of businesses including a dental surgery and DIY store immediately to the west.

The site is estimated to extend to around 250m² measuring approximately 13m x 20m at its widest points as shown on the plan overleaf. The buyer would be entitled to use of parking at the rear of the site.

Planning permission for retail use was granted in the past as part of a previous proposed development of the shopping centre, although other uses such as office use may also be possible however any new development would require a fresh application and prospective purchasers should satisfy themselves in this regarding by discussing with the local planning department directly.

Services are assumed to be easily available however again prospective purchasers should contact the relevant utility providers directly regarding availability and suitability of services.

Property Location

The site is situated on North Road immediately opposite the junction with Gilbertson Road, between the 'Minimarket' at the Toll Clock and the Dentist at 28 North Road.

Important Information for Prospective Purchasers

This schedule is intended only to help you decide whether to view the property. We always recommend you view the property personally.

The information is believed to be correct, but it is not warranted and is not to form part of any contract of sale. All dates, distances, areas and room sizes noted are approximate and for use as a general guide only. Prospective purchasers should satisfy themselves as to the working condition or otherwise of any equipment such as central heating or kitchen appliances.

This schedule should not be taken as a comment on the condition of the property. This is a matter for your surveyor and we recommend that once you have found a property you are interested in, you obtain a survey report. We can provide details of surveyors if required.

Interested parties are advised to note their interest through their solicitor as soon as possible so that they can be informed if a closing date is fixed. Noting interest does not place any obligation on the seller to set a closing date or to give any noted interests the opportunity to offer. Whilst every effort will be made to advise noted interests of any closing date set, this cannot be guaranteed.

No responsibility will be accepted for expenses incurred by parties who have noted interest but do not get an opportunity to offer, or for any expenses incurred traveling to properties which have been sold or withdrawn.

Thanks again for your brilliant service with both my property sales over the past years. Your experience in Shetland is much noted with local people.

Selling my house whilst living in Edinburgh was a daunting prospect but I should not have worried. The communications between both parties was easy and the sale of my property went through without any hitches.

Location Desired

Please do not select all locations - different areas in Shetland have quite different characteristics. For example, it would be unlikely that a property in Lerwick will be of interest to someone considering a croft house in Yell or Unst.
