A rare opportunity - a prime town centre development site for 4 cottages.


An exciting and unique development opportunity in the heart of Bridport town centre. Detailed planning permission has been passed for two pairs of semi-detached cottages - comprising two new semi-detached cottages and the conversion of the existing barn to provide two further semi-detached cottages.

Planning permission was passed in July 2008 (application number 1/D/08/000627). In total the site extends to about 110' depth x 40' width (33.8m x 12.4m). The footings have been laid for the proposed 2 new builds and the former barn is not listed. There is an archaeological report.

The cottages will all face south with net floor areas of about 545sqft (50sqm) each.

The proposed accommodation will comprise:

Pair of new cottages: ground floor: lounge, inner lobby, kitchen, cloakroom.

first floor: landing, 2 bedrooms, bathroom. About 545sqft.

outside: private courtyard, potential parking spaces.

Conversion of the barn for two new cottages: ground floor: open plan living/kitchen, cloakroom.

first floor: landing, 2 bedrooms, bathroom.

outside: private courtyard, potential parking spaces.

The site has vehicular access off Chancery Lane (the access lane between Chancery Lane and the site also belongs to the development site).

It is considered that the proposed scheme of 4 cottages would be highly marketable and development opportunities of this type are rarely available in Bridport town centre.

The neighbouring lock-up shop (to the rear of 19 South Street) is available to buy and has limited vehicular access off South Street. It would also give the development site pedestrian access to South Street. Guide price £100,000.


The freeholders of 21 South Street (not the sellers of this land) have a legal right for 2 parking spaces in perpetuity and this must be provided for within the scheme.


The site is ideally situated in a very convenient town centre location yet being tucked away and quiet with no passing traffic. It is within just a few minute's walk of South Street, East Street and the town centre. Furthermore the delightful water meadows alongside the River Asker are also very nearby, proving excellent walking opportunities.
