    All shops are available on a 5 year internal repairing lease basis.

    Shops may be used for any purpose within A1, A2, A3, A4 & A5 of the Town and Country Planning Act (Use Classes) Order 1987 (as amended). The above uses may require planning consent and enquiries to Development Control will be the responsibility of the offeror.
