Lawson Commercial are pleased to announce that the developers of Portland House in Framfield Road, Uckfield are to complete the fitting out of the ground floor offices shortly.
Since the flats were completed on the upper floors the offices have been in a basic shell form but are now to be finished which will involve installation of combined heating/cooling units, cloakroom & tea station facilities, carpeting, and decoration with some remodelling of the space to create 4 suites. each of around 800 – 900 sq ft.
We were very pleased at this news as we are short of good quality offices in Uckfield and this is brand new space within walking distance of the railway station and town centre. Already we have strong interest and hope that at least one of the suites will be under offer very shortly.
Lawson Commercial have let Unit 3 in Phase I of Horsted Square in Bellbrook Business Park, Uckfield to Essential Christian who are a long established charity already occupying 9,000 sq ft in Phase II.
They needed additional storage and office space. Unit 3 comprises just under 1,500 sq ft on 2 floors arranged as a ground floor storage facility with offices above.
We were very pleased to see that a local business continues to expand and are now a very significant employer in this part of the Bellbrook Estate.
Former printers premises in Framfield Road, Uckfield have become available freehold through Lawson Commercial.
The property has a long history of commercial use having originally been an old dairy. It has considerable scope and potential. It provides just under 2,500 sq ft of accommodation on 2 floors with some useful 1st floor offices together with an extensive ground floor area ideal for storage, manufacturing and other business purposes.
Back in 2017 a planning application for 3 terraced houses was applied for on this site but this was refused and lost on appeal. It has residential development potential but it is clear that the planners felt that the application for 3 houses in that particular design was not in keeping with the area and was overdevelopment of the site.
Offers are being sought in the region of £295,000 for the freehold interest.
Lawson Commercial partner Chris Lawson reports:
What a fantastic day last Saturday was as Uckfield celebrated Weald on the Field, a marvellous showcase of local produce plus live music, pop up bars and street food.
Well done to Uckfield town clerk Holly and the team from Uckfield Town Council for organising such a tremendous event. With my President of Uckfield Chamber of Commerce hat on I am pleased that the Chamber were able to contribute by sponsoring the stage. I didn’t manage to see the whole programme but certainly the bands I saw were very good.
Local community radio Uckfield FM where also there providing live broadcast spots.
There was plenty for kids to enjoy and my grandson had a wonderful time on the bouncy castle and eating ice cream.
His joy in the latter was clearly shared by Chamber Secretary Ian Noble who, well known for his multi tasking skills, was spotted eating 2 ice creams at once! However it was a very hot afternoon.
Danny The Idiot was also a firm favourite with the children making all kinds of animals such as cats, unicorns, octopuses and even a red duck for my grandson.
Lawson Commercial have just been instructed to market a small industrial unit which is coming available to let in Uckfield.
Unit 1 Plot 14 Bell Lane is within minutes walk of the High Street lying behind the Esso petrol station in Bellfarm Road, one of the main routeways in and out of the Town.
This unit is end-of-terrace and larger than others in this terrace having some 1,590 sq ft of ground floor gross internal area together with a very useful side annexe which can either be used for additional storage or as an office.
Within the main body of the unit is a mezzanine floor at the back which benefits from natural light from rear windows.
Overall just under 2,500 sq ft is on offer and there is useful hard standing and car parking outside. Being the end unit just a little more parking can be squeezed in up against the boundary fence. The unit is available on a new 10 year lease with a review after 5 years at a rent of £18,500 pa. Possession should be available in the Autumn.
