The Church Hall adjoins the former United Reformed Church, an impressive building on Dartmouth Road close to Paignton town centre (which is itself the subject of a residential conversion to a single dwelling). All of the town centre amenities and the sea front are within easy reach. The site is close to the bus station and to Paignton Railway Station.
Torbay Council granted planning consent and listed building consent (refs. P/2014/1156 and P/2014/1157) on 9 March 2015 for the conversion of the church hall into five residential apartments and the demolition of an external brick-built boiler room. The planning is deemed to have been implemented as the boiler room has now been demolished. CIL obligations have been discharged.
In addition, plans have been drawn up for two additional flats as a rear extension to the hall. These proposals have met with a positive pre-application response from the planning authority who have stated that they would be likely to gain officer support.
Potential buyers might also take account of the potential for office, leisure and retail use following previous successful planning applications P/2008/0237 and P/2008/0236
