Full description


This is a spacious plot with farmland views to the rear fronting Main Road, Ford End.

The village of Ford End is centrally located offering convenient access to a number of town centres; Braintree 6km, Chelmsford 10km, Great Dunmow 6km and Stansted Airport 15km (approximate distances as the crow flies).

The property enjoys frontage to Main Road with a the benefit of a wide verge.

The property has a frontage of approximately 14m, it is about 47m deep and widens out to about 31m at the rear. The total plot, measured from Promap, is approximately 0.1 ha (0.26 acres).


Outline Planning Permission was been granted by Chelmsford City Council, in June 2015, Reference 15/00923/OUT for a New Dwelling.

A plot with the benefit of outline planning consent, such as this allows, the purchaser to dictate the size, scale and design of the property to be constructed. This offers an opportunity to create a unique property to meet the purchasers personal requirements.

By way of illustration the Planning Agent considers it reasonable to assume consent could be achieved for a substantial 4 bedroom detached dwelling.

Please note full detailed planning permission will be required and purchasers are advised to seek their own independent advice as to size and scale of property that can be achieved.


The land is to be sold freehold with vacant possession.

The vendor will impose a condition on the sale that the property is only to be used as a single residential dwelling, requiring a further payment of £50,000 per plot if planning consent is achieved enabling the plot to be further subdivided, at any time within the next 25 years.


Purchasers must make their own inquiries to ensure that the necessary services are available to meet their requirements.
