MCR Property Group submits plans for commercial development in Worthing

MCR Property Group has submitted plans to deliver a new commercial scheme on Southdownview Road in Worthing.

Plans for the site include delivering 23 industrial starter units totalling over 28,000 sq. ft., which will be aimed at small-medium enterprises based in the local area. 109 car parking spaces and storage for 48 bicycles will also be created.

The commercial space will be accessible from an existing vehicular entrance on Southdownview Road, with a new footpath provision also proposed.

MCR Property Group has previously submitted plans to convert the former EDF building, located to the west of this new commercial site, into residential homes. A 2.4m palisade fence has been proposed to separate the two schemes.

Prospective tenants would benefit from being situated less than two miles from Worthing town centre and just 500 metres away from East Worthing rail station.

Harry Ladds, asset manager at MCR Property Group, said: “We’re thrilled to announce plans for a new commercial scheme in Worthing, which will bring fantastic employment and business opportunities to this key seaside town. There is a strong demand for industrial starter units, due to a very few being built in the area.

“Our plans are fully in keeping with the character and appearance of the surrounding space, as well as Worthing Council’s local plan. We’re confident that delivering these high quality, sought-after industrial units will meet the needs of the community, providing a cost-effective place for local businesses to operate.”

A formal planning application was submitted in June 2019.
