Maggs & Allen offer a wealth of knowledge within the Bristol commercial property market.  One sector currently experiencing increased demand are properties benefiting from D1/D2 Use, most commonly associated with businesses relating to the local community. 


The two Use Classes can be categorised as follows:

D1 Use-Class – D1 commercial property is classified as Non-Residential Institutions and covers properties such as Medical & Health Services, Education and Training Centres, Day Nurseries, Art Galleries, Libraries, Church Halls and Places of Worship.

D2 Use-Class – D2 commercial property is classified as Assembly & Leisure and covers Gymnasiums, Cinemas, Concert Halls, Bingo and Dance Halls, Casinos, Swimming Baths and Sports Arenas.

We have extensive experience specialising in the sale and letting of properties with D1 and D2 use-classes and the demand for such properties is continually growing. Recent transactions include the sale of a Community Centre in Kingswood, which re-opened as a Children’s Day Nursery, as well as the sale of many Doctors Surgeries and Church Halls throughout Bristol.

We are able to provide a tailored marketing strategy for the sale and letting of D1 and D2 premises.
