Available from early 2024, this fantastic Class 3 Hot Food takeaway in Gourock has undergone a transformation following external renovation works to ready for new occupancy and is located directly off of the A78 main road through the popular and growing Gourock town centre.
Home to the former Wee Chippy for over four decades, the property has lain vacant for the past six years, with the internal elements in the process of being removed.
Extensive works have taken place externally on the building to refurbish what was a tired property into a vibrant new space ready for a growing business.
As a result, this property is set to be available to enter from early 2024, with our client open to discussions with new occupants as to intended use.
The current layout provides a good-sized waiting/ordering area at the front of the building, which leads to a large kitchen area with toilet, lobby and wash up area to the rear.
The property is set to be cleared internally, with the landlord willing to work alongside a new tenant to create a long-term partnership for the property.
There is a range of on-street parking for staff and visitors.
Gourock is a thriving town, bucking the retail challenges nationally, with a high demand for units like this in and around the town centre area. As a result, this property is expected to be popular and likely to be let quickly.
Further images and a virtual tour are to follow with viewings to be scheduled in advance to enable entry.
A previous planning application in 2016 to Inverclyde Council (16/0275/IC) for a change of use of hot food takeaway to restaurant (Class 3) together with the removal of existing roller shutters, installation of retractable canopy and repainting of shopfront was approved but has since lapsed.
The subjects are located at the foot of John Street and Shore Street, with direct access from the A770 main road at Shore Street, a 5-minute walk to the famous Gourock pierhead.
Gourock is located approximately 28 miles west of Glasgow on Scotland's West Coast, with a residential population in excess of 10,000 persons and a core catchment population of approximately 270,000 persons, all within the authority of Inverclyde Council.
