Lot 48 - Industrial Site with Outline Planning for 5 Residential Dwellings



The property has most recently been used for plastic injection mounding but has had various different uses over the years. The site used to employ 60 members of staff but with the demand for plastic production in the UK decreasing the site now operates on a much smaller scale.

The site encompasses approximately 0.6 acres, and is comprised of five buildings and a parcel of land to the rear of the site which may allow for further development (subject to the relevant consents).

Located in Porth, a 20 minute walk from Porth train station and 1 minute to the A4058, the main thoroughfare through Porth, this property is ideal for commuters. Furthermore, it is a 15 minute walk to Hannah Street, the main High Street in the town of Porth.

The property benefits from gas, water and electric (not tested).

Business Rates
The site is listed on the register as factory and premises and has a rateable value of £14,500.
