The property is situated on the edge of Haslingden town centre in a prominent location close to Haslingden Health Centre with easy access to the regional, national motorway network.


The property comprises the former Stepping Stones Development Therapy Unit extending to 3,138 sq.ft on a site of approximately 0.301 acres. The property is of timber fabricated structure under a flat roof and we would estimate the property was constructed in the mid to late 1970's. Internally it has been sub divided into a number of separate rooms with wc and amenity facilities around a central courtyard. The building could be continued to be used as an existing childrens drop in centre/nursery/crèche or, alternatively, other use, including healthcare, offices, vets, etc. The site may also be suitable for residential development, subject to planning and interested parties are recommended to contact Rossendale Borough Council to discuss their proposed use in greater detail.


We have calculated the net internal area of the premises to be 3,138 sq.ft.


It is understood that all mains services are available to the premises.


The property has a current rateable value of £9,500. Under certain circumstances, given that the rateable value is below the current small business rate threshold of £12,000, it is possible that the occupier would be exempt from rates. Full details on request.
