Main Description
Secure yard occupying a level site at Charlesfield Industrial Estate, which benefits from an accessible position in the central Scottish Borders.

Charlesfield was originally developed as a munitions depot during the second world war. Within recent years it has been redeveloped and extended to provide a thriving strategic industrial estate.

The Estate is in a readily accessible location benefiting from good access to the main border towns, Edinburgh and Newcastle-upon-Tyne via the A68 trunk road.

These units are being developed to the west of the estate. Nearby occupiers include Best In Tent, C J Hughes Haulage, George White, Robertson Timber Merchants, George Marshall Agricultural Dealership and Engineers, Borthwick Trucks (HGV repairs, paintshop and testing bay), A B Wright Engineering and McCormick Agent, Paul Ford, D J Services, Astral Hygiene, Allied Truck and Trailer components and Bell Storage.

Secure yard.

Dimensions average width c. 21.65 m x depth 26.80 m.

572 sqm (0.14 acre) or thereby.

Charlesfield is zoned within the Scottish Borders Local Development Plan 2016 for retention of Business and Industrial use. This supports a range of uses as defined within the Definition of the Town and Country (Use Classes) (Scotland) Order 1997 including:

Class 4 (Business/Light Industrial use)
Class 5 (General Industrial)
Class 6 (Storage and Distribution)

We would also anticipate that there may also be scope for a range of trade counter and sui generis (site specific) uses in keeping with the existing uses at the estate which may include uses such as car/ tractor dealerships; vehicle repair workshop, veterinary surgery; dentist.

These are new units so the Ratable Value will be assessed on completion. The RV will be well below this threshold.
