An opportunity to purchase a traditional two storey property, fronting Mill Street, Cannock; comprising a retail shop with frontage to Mill Street to the ground floor, with accommodation to the first floor, formerly used as offices, with consent to convert to two residential flats; and large car parking area to the rear with 37 parking bays, with planning permission for a development of five dwellings. The car park and land to the rear extends to an area of 0.34 acres (0.137 ha).

Location
6 Mill Street is situated in the town centre of Cannock near the busy A4601 and A34 Walsall Road junction. Cannock boasts a range of amenities including a hospital and a range of high street shops. The property is located within the centre of the town overlooking St Luke’s Churchyard to the front. The front of the property abuts the pavement on Mill Street with retail frontage.

From the A5 Watling Street, take the Wolverhampton Road, A4601 and continue straight over the roundabout onto Avon Road. Proceed into the centre of town and straight on at the lights, where Pursehouse Florists can be seen on the right. The access to the car park is situated to the north side of No 8 Mill Street. It would be more easily approached from the centre of town, having proceeded to the following roundabout and returned on the opposite carriageway.

Town and Country Planning
Planning permission was approved in 2016 (application CH/15/0341) to convert the first floor of the property to two single bedroom residential flats, with two designated parking spaces for this development. This permission was renewed (application CH/21/0198) and approved again with conditions in November 2021.

A further application was submitted relating to the south east area of the car park. The application (CH/16/269) was approved in 2017 (with conditions) for the erection of 5, two storey terraced residential units with integral parking. A renewal application CH/21/0274 was approved in March 2022, with conditions. Conditions include the requirement for a written scheme of archaeological investigation to be submitted for approval and the development must be undertaken within the constraints of the tree retention plan.

The contemporary development scheme offers a modern accommodation layout with a car port on the ground floor leading through to an entrance hallway, Cloakroom and bedroom; the first floor offering open plan living accommodation with a combined living, dining and kitchen area with a separate bathroom and a balcony to the rear. Four of the units offer a floor area (GIA) of approximately 81 m2 (872 sq.ft.) and a single bedroom to the ground floor. With the fifth unit being slightly larger at approximately 82.35m2 (886 sq.ft.) and offering two bedrooms to the ground floor.

Each unit will have an additional parking space and a small patio to the rear/east side which will opens up onto an area of shared garden space within the area of trees. The additional car parking space per unit will leave 7 remaining parking spaces for use by Mill Street occupiers, as desired.

The two proposed flats are subject to an Affordable Housing Contribution which requires a payment calculated in accordance with the schedule to a section 106 undertaking dated 9th March 2016; and to a Conservation contribution of £442 (Index Linked) pursuant to a s 106 undertaking dated 4th November 2021.
