Development Potential

There is an exciting opportunity to develop and add upper floors for residential accommodation subject to planning. The current building is lower than surrounding buildings at only one and half floors so there is excellent potential for upward development (see image). Planning permission for six flats applied for under reference 23/P/00401. An asbestos report is available showing no asbestos in situ.


Guildford, with a population of some 144,000, is an historic city with its own wonderful cathedral. Guildford is some 31 miles south west of London just off the A3. Train links are excellent with fast trains to Waterloo in around 30 minutes.

The property is situated on Swan Lane one of the busy cross streets in the prime shopping area. The shop has a rear exit on to Angel Gate.
