PLANS have been submitted to demolish several buildings in Yate and replace them with commercial units.

The plans submitted to South Gloucestershire Council recently would see ten new commercial units on an industrial estate to the west of Yate which is currently used by a company to store recovered vehicles.

Vehicle rescue and recovery operator Victoria Recovery has been trading for over 20 years and is based at the site in North Road, Yate.

If permission is granted, work on the plans would take place once the company no longer requires use of the site to store recovered vehicles when it moves premises. 
The buildings associated with Victoria Recovery would be demolished and replaced by 10 new commercial units. 

These units would be a workshop of between 141 and 148 square meters for rent as a production or manufacturing facility for small and medium-sized businesses.

"A total of 26 parking spaces are provided alongside two visitor spaces (including 1 disabled access space.

"Each unit will be made available as a workshop for rent is to be used as a production or manufacturing facility for small and medium-sized businesses.

"The design of each unit is to be in keeping with the surrounding character of the industrial estate which is set out in further detail within the accompanying design information.

"Public benefits of the proposals include the appropriate redevelopment of a sustainable, brownfield site, without detriment to surrounding uses or highway network, that would provide new employment opportunities and would improve upon the existing street scene of the area."
