PARTICULARS

The extent of the land shown edged red on the Sale Plan herewith.

The buyers will be responsible for providing, erecting and thereafter maintaining a suitable stockproof boundary, subject to planning, along the proposed south easterly boundary.

The sellers will reserve a right of access into the retained land to the east and south of the land.

As mentioned, the land slopes gently upwards from the gate at the southern most corner, towards the northerly and easterly boundaries.

The site is only a few minutes walk from the town centre, but also has the attraction of fine views, particularly from the northerly and easterly boundaries.

PLANNING

The text of the South Lakeland Plan stipulates that the site offers the opportunity to accommodate around 16 dwellings and rises east towards Eccleriggs Bank.

The site is bounded by a dry a stone wall to Foxfield Road. It is visually contained by frontage properties to Foxfield Road and rising ground behind. Screening and landscaping will be required to soften the impact of development on surrounding properties and wider view points.

Key issues include the provision of open space to meet identified needs in the village and the opportunity to provide a pedestrian link to Eccleriggs Lane.

Other issues highlighted include surface water management and the need for sensitive siting of buildings to avoid outbursts of visual impacts.

The owners and sellers have not submitted any Planning Permission applications to South Lakeland District Council.

Prospective buyers are recommended to make their own enquiries at the Planning Offices of South Lakeland District Council, details of which are provided below.

The sellers would prefer to agree a sale by way of a conditional contract subject to Planning Permission for a satisfactory residential development, but the sellers would also consider an option arrangement.

Prospective buyers are recommended to assure themselves as regards the policy for South Lakeland District Council for land which has been allocated for residential use, in particular the required element of affordable homes and the contributions to the Community Infrastructure Levy [CIL].
