Cavendish Road, Clare CO10 8PJ




An attractive opportunity to purchase this commercial plot with planning permission for 1.5 storey replacement barn with B1 usage for offices. The versatile accommodation fits perfectly with surrounding businesses on the edge of the popular Suffolk Town and therefore offers a great investment opportunity.


The property is located on the A1092 Cavendish Road approximately ½ a mile from the attractive market town of Clare which is set in the beautiful countryside of west Suffolk’s Upper Stour Valley.
Clare is some 14 miles from Bury St Edmunds, 9 miles from Sudbury and 7 miles from Long Melford. There is a thriving 2,000 strong community and numerous independent traders are housed in some of the town’s 133 Listed properties.


The property forms part of a small business complex currently providing showrooms for Baker & Baker, a luxury bespoke kitchen manufacturer as well as workshops for other small independent businesses.
The current planning allows for 1,825 sqft (170 sqm) on the ground floor, to replace the current barn, together with a 4’6” strip of land running adjacent to what will be the boundary walls of the new building to the north, south and eastern elevations. In addition a strip of land to the front, western, elevation, to provide parking for up to 8 cars is included.
Pedestrian and vehicular access rights over the drive to the property from Cavendish Road will be reserved. There will be a proportionate annual service charge in respect of the repair and maintenance of the access road .


The proposed new build has scope for single or dual occupation. As a single unit the design provides for the following accommodation and approximate gross internal floor areas:-
Entrance Core 323sqft (30sqm)
Services/Store 323sqft (30sqm)
Ground Floor Offices 1,184sqft (110sqm)
Mezzanine Offices 1,184sqft (110sqm)
GIA Floor Area 3,114sqft (280sqm)


We are advised that mains water, gas and electricity are available nearby with foul waste currently available via a shared septic tank. An independent connection into a planned new mains sewer may be possible in the future.


Parking for up to 8 cars is included in the sale.


Planning consent was granted on the 17th December 2015, application number DC/15/2037/FUL, for the proposed 1½ storey replacement building for B1 office use following demolition of the existing barn. The barn lies within the curtilage of the Listed Clare Hall and accordingly Listed Building consent for the demolition is also in place, from the same date, under application number DC//15/2038/LB. Copies available upon request.
The owners have implemented the planning consent having partially demolished the barn within the required timescale. .
