Woolley & Wallis Commercial have recently started marketing the Old Ramparts Filling Station site which has been lying vacant and derelict since 2002. Formerly the site of the home of an important local inventor and photographer, Theodore Brown, the site was then redeveloped as Henley’s garage which was in turn demolished in the 1960’s in favour of a more modern petrol filling station. The site was eventually levelled and has remained vacant.
The land comprises approximately 0.16 acre (0.065 ha) and occupies a prominent position on one of the principle trunk roads into the City. Fronting Wilton Road and diagonally facing St Paul’s Roundabout the site has the potential to provide more than 20 flats (subject to planning). The planning consent granted in 2010 was for a mixed scheme providing for both commercial uses on the ground floor with 14 flats over first and second floors.
Woolley & Wallis Commercial who are the sole agents acting on behalf of the vendor are inviting offers in the region of £700,000. Rob Horton who is handling the site said it was a unique opportunity for any developer to acquire such a prominent site to develop in the City and that Woolley & Wallis, one of Salisbury’s oldest firms were very pleased to be acting on behalf of the vendor.
