Full description

Plot 2 Lawson Garth is one of just two building plots currently available close to the heart of Brigham, an attractive and sought-after village lying just 3 miles to the west of Cockermouth. The plot is set within established surroundings and enjoying a relatively open aspect to the rear with glimpses of views opening up to the front over the village. Outline Planning Permission has been granted for residential development, subject to approval of reserved matters. The purchaser will be responsible for obtaining approval of reserved matters which will include layout, accommodation and appearance, allowing scope for designing a property to suit their taste and needs.

Rarely do building plots become available - this offers a fantastic self build or speculative development opportunity.

The Village - Brigham lies just 3 miles from Cockermouth, well placed for easy access to major employment centres along the west coast, yet also handy for the attractions of the Lake District National Park. The village nestles within attractive rolling countryside, with street scenes which include a mix of traditional and more contemporary properties, supported by Brigham Primary School, a village shop/post office and St. Bridget's Church. Nearby, the market town of Cockermouth offers an extensive choice of local, regional and national retailers, including Sainsburys, Cockermouth School (secondary) and a wide choice of social/leisure opportunities including cafes, pubs and restaurants as well as a sports complex/swimming pool and the Kirkgate Arts Centre.

Brigham is ideally placed for easy access to principal road networks including the A595 to Carlisle, the A66 to Keswick/Penrith and the motorway junction and the A595 southwards to Whitehaven and industries around the BNFL Sellafield complex.

Description - The building plot enjoys a natural setting on the edge of the village, amidst other housing to varying type, style and age.

Planning Consent - Grant of Outline Planning Permission was obtained on the 19th July 2010 for residential development, subject to approval of reserved matters which will include the layout, scale and appearance of the proposed property. The planning application was handled by Lakeland Building Design, Cockermouth - if you wish to discuss progressing your designs in more detail, please feel free to discuss your proposals with Paul Boustead on 01900 827021.

Please contact Grisdales Estate Agents for further details and a copy of the Outline Planning approval.

Services - As far as we are aware all mains services are available in the road. It is the responsibility of the purchaser to check the availability and cost of provision of services with the relevant statutory authorities.

Directions - The site is best approached from Cockermouth by leaving on the A66 towards Workington. After approximately 2 miles, turn left to Brigham where signposted. Continue past the church and immediately after the sharp right hand bend turn left and proceed into the village. Turn right at the "T" junction and follow through the village - after approximately quarter of a mile Lawson Garth is situated on the left hand side.

Council Tax - On completion the proposed dwelling will be assessed for council tax purposes by Allerdale Borough Council.
