The Site

The land is identified by the adjoining plan and amounts to approximately 0.14ha (0.36 acres). There is a right of access to the Substation located to the South West corner of the site. The Substation lease has expired therefore there may be an opportunity for the purchaser to agree a premium with the electricity distributor for renewing the lease. A geological fault runs through part of the site, interested parties are advised to refer to the SYMAS Report within the Legal Pack for further information.


The site is Urban Fabric in the Local Plan and therefore may be suitable for a small scale residential development subject to the relevant consents. Bungalows are considered to be most suitable for the site due to it being surrounded by existing dwellings. Any development of 5 dwellings may be liable to a requirement to pay a commuted sum towards the provision of school places as per the draft Financial Contributions to Schools Supplementary Planning Document. A Coal Mining Risk Assessment will be required to support any planning application. Interested parties are advised to make their own planning and highways enquiries in respect of possible schemes.
