CLOSING DATE - 2PM FRIDAY 5TH JULY 2019, Development Site, Kemper Avenue, Falkirk, FK1 1UF

1.16 acres / Land / Mixed Use

For Sale - £330,000.00

Under Offer - Last updated: 14 June 2021


The subject comprises the northern portion of an essentially flat tarmacked public car park. The site is suitable for a wide range of uses for this central location – see PLANNING within TERMS. Please note there is a culvert enclosing a stream running through the site roughly south to north in the centre of the site and the Antonine Wall is a little further north than that. Future access to the site would be taken approximately half way along the western boundary of the site.


The subjects are within the town of Falkirk, the largest town in the Falkirk Council area, with a population of around 35,000. Motorway links are excellent with the M9 and M876 close to the eastern, western and northern edges of the town. The nearest railway stations are Falkirk High, which is less than mile away, offering fast rail connections to Edinburgh and Glasgow of less than half an hour and Falkirk Grahamston half a mile away offering services to Stirling, Edinburgh and beyond.

There is a mix of uses in the surrounding area with Lidl to the north, the Hotel Cladhan on the west, Callendar Park to the south east and housing to the north-west and east. The High Street is a few minutes’ walk to the north.


SITE AREA - 0.47 Hectares (1.16 Acres).


The site lies within the Urban Limit and is classified in retail terms as an edge of centre site. In terms of acceptable uses, housing is likely to be acceptable subject to Policy HSG03, and Class2/Class 4 Business subject to Policy BUS04. The site could also be suitable for food and drink uses subject to Policy TC04, and tourism uses subject to Policy BUS01. Because the site is located outwith the Town Centre boundary, the acceptability of retail and commercial leisure proposals would be dependent on assessment against Policy TC03, which in turn would depend on the scale and nature of proposals.

The Antonine Wall World Heritage Site (WHS) lies just beyond the southern boundary of the site, however there is still the possibility of archaeological remains and therefore there is likely to be a requirement for archaeological investigation. There may also be requirements related to protecting the setting of the WHS, including set back of development from, and treatment of, the site boundary. Policy D07 is relevant, along with accompanying supplementary guidance.
