  • Car Parking
  • Mains Electrcity

A unique and rare opportunity to acquire an area of ground with Planning Permission (ref. 2016/434/PPF; 2017/283/PPF) providing for the extension of an existing commercial building or its conversion into a one bedroom dwelling house in the centre of Lerwick. The latter would ideally suit a small business, providing the opportunity to live on site with separate commercial premises in close proximity to Commercial Street and public parking.

Currently the site includes two commercial buildings with a lean too attached to the larger one. Each building has separate electricity supply and mains drainage is on site. The water connections can be installed by the Seller upon confirmation of the routes required.

Historically this site was used as a stable and cart storage and features the original flagstones. Latterly it has been used as a private builder’s yard. There are the appropriate consents in place to remove the small wall that currently divides the site from the adjacent public car park.

Prospective purchasers should satisfy themselves as to the terms of the Permissions in place by contacting Shetland Island Council’s Planning Office directly.

The Seller may consider dividing the site to allow for the residential conversion and commercial aspects to be sold separately.
