0.42 Acres - Potential for Open Storage
Pinewood Studios -  West Malling, Sevenoaks
A20 frontage -  West Malling, Sevenoaks

Views of A20 road frontage and current site    


The property comprises a roughly square level plot prominently situated at the junction of London Road and Winterfield Lane with views out to agricultural land.

The property was formally used as a highways depot and a centre for training workshops for the mentally handicapped together with more recent consents for telecommunications masts before the more recent consent for a B2 workshop development.

The original buildings have been demolished leaving the foundation & hardcore from the demolition together with the remaining concrete yard area. The client is in the process of levelling the site for occupation or development.

There are extensive trees to the London Road frontage which can be seen as a useful barrier to the road or screening the site.

The property is in an excellent macro location between Junctions 4 and 5 of the M20 and is circa 1 mile south east of Junction 4 M20. The property is within 0.6 miles east of the A228 giving easy access to the M2.


The property occupies a prominent position at the western side of the junction of Winterfield Lane and the A20.
The site benefits from frontage to the A20 and Winterfield Lane. The property is virtually opposite the junction with Lunsford Lane and former BP Garage. Winterfield Lane is signposted for Clare Park from the A20.

In respect to public transport the property is situated some 0.7 miles north east of West Malling Railway Station with a regular bus service running along the A20.

The property adjoins Pankhurst Contracting to the rear and benefits from a pleasant western view overlooking agricultural land. The site is fenced and has a single entrance onto Winterfield Lane.

We understand the plot is some 0.42 acres amounting to 18,200 Sq Ft.


FREEHOLD. Title number K933883.


There is current planning consent for a detached 7000 Sq Ft approx. warehouse ref. TM/09/00195/FL for B2 general industrial use.
There is a restriction that no machinery can be operated outside hours 7.30am-6.30pm Monday to Friday or 7.30am -1pm at weekends. Note this is machinery only NOT hours of operations.

The summary of the planning history shows the site originally had consent for a gas sales and service centre in 1960s/70s obtaining consent from a highways depot to a centre for the mentally handicapped in 1985. During the 1990s two consents were given for 20 & 25m telecommunication masts. We have discussed the property with Tonbridge & Malling BC & understand it is outside the built confines with their main concerns being the visual amenity and the highways. We understand the visual amenity can be dealt with in a straight forward manner. In respect to the highways it is the turning from the A20 and then into the site is of concern.

We understand they will not allow residential retail or any non residential care use due to the highways.
The reason the B2 was given is because the KCC use was a B2 rather than a D1 use.

Consideration would be given to change of use to open storage if the highways concerns and visual amenity were addressed. Interested parties are advised to make enquiries to Tonbridge & Malling BC (tel 01732 844522).



The proposed development is for a detached L shaped building with two loading bays (enabling occupation by 2 occupiers) mainly set on the ground floor but with some first floor office accommodation. There is ample yard for turning & loading with 15 marked parking spaces shown.



  The property has excellent road communications situated between Junctions 4 & 5 M20 with Junction 4 within 1 mile
  Public transport - West Malling rail station within 0.7 miles & A20 bus service
  Prominently located site fronting A20
  Excellent development opportunity
  Full planning consent for B2 general industrial building
