Paignton

THE SITE
The Church Hall adjoins the former United Reformed Church, an impressive building on Dartmouth Road close to Paignton town centre (which is itself the subject of a residential conversion to a single dwelling). All of the town centre amenities and the sea front are within easy reach. The site is close to the bus station and to Paignton Railway Station.

PLANNING
Torbay Council granted planning consent and listed building consent (refs. P/2014/1156 and P/2014/1157) on 9 March 2015 for the conversion of the church hall into five residential apartments and the demolition of an external brick-built boiler room. The planning is deemed to have been implemented as the boiler room has now been demolished. CIL obligations have been discharged.

In addition, plans have been drawn up for two additional flats as a rear extension to the hall. These proposals have met with a positive pre-application response from the planning authority who have stated that they would be likely to gain officer support.

Potential buyers might also take account of the potential for office, leisure and retail use following previous successful planning applications P/2008/0237 and P/2008/0236

Exeter

The property is tucked away in the centre of Alphington “village”, approximately 2 miles from Exeter City Centre. There are good local amenities close at hand, together with frequent bus services. Nearby is the extensive Marsh Barton Trading Estate.

The premises comprise a detached single storey former chapel which is believed to date from the late 19th Century, and which was more recently extended to provide more up to date ancillary accommodation. The building is not listed but is in a Conservation Area.

Informal discussions with the local planning authority indicate that any planning proposals would need to demonstrate a lack of demand for community-related uses before other alternatives would be supported.
