Weston-super-Mare is a popular resort town on the Bristol Channel coast, famous for its long sandy beach, pier and grand Victorian architecture, and attracting growing numbers of day visitors. It lies 18 miles to the south west of Bristol and the M4, alongside Junction 21 of the M5 with a dual carriage way link into the town centre. This has attracted considerable recent commercial and out of town retail uses as well as residential development. The town has a population of around 78,000 and has excellent rail links to Exeter, Bristol, Cardiff, Birmingham and London Paddington making the town popular with commuters. The property lies in an attractive residential area in an elevated position looking out to sea, and a short walk from the sea front.


The property comprises the site of a former quarry with a long frontage to and access off Atlantic Road South, from where the site slopes away, so offering extensive views across the sea front and Bristol Channel.
The lower part of the site was subject to a residential development completed in 2006, with the remainder of the site having a planning consent for an eight storey development of 23 two and three bedroom (circa 900 sq ft) flats with communal garden and parking. There is no requirement for affordable housing.




The property benefits from a planning consent and Section 191 Lawful Use Certificate for a development comprising 23 two and three bedroom apartments and 23 parking spaces.
