Full description

Tenure: Freehold


An opportunity to acquire a building plot with detailed planning permission (Ref.15/00824/FUL) for a detached chalet style two-storey dwelling with an integral garage, parking area and south-facing rear garden in this extremely sought-after Teign estuary village. The proposed plans show the ground floor (including the garage) having a gross internal floor area of approximately 95.4m2 (1,027 sqft) and the first floor having a gross internal floor area of approximately 68.8m2 (740 sqft), although half of this area on the first floor has a height of less than 1200mm above finished floor level. The site slopes down from north to south and extends to approximately 0.088 hectares (0.21 acres).

The plot is located to the west of the village centre off Forder Lane and is situated to the rear of the property "Downabit" and access is via a shared private driveway, the entirety of which is also within the ownership of the seller. The proposed plans involve the demolition of the single storey extension to the side of Downabit to allow construction of the access drive down to the plot. This demolition and making good works is negotiable as part of the sale for either the seller or purchaser to undertake as part of the deal.


Bishopsteignton is positioned between the towns of Newton Abbot and Teignmouth in South Devon. Situated on the hillside to the north of the Teign Estuary, the village offers spectacular views over the estuary and local countryside. The village has a range of local shops, two pubs, a hotel and restaurant, vineyard, coffee shop along with a well regarded primary school and sports facilities.


Teignbridge District Council granted planning permission (Ref.15/00824/FUL) for a new dwelling and access drive on land rear of Downabit, West Town Meadow, Bishopsteignton, TQ14 9SF on 31st July 2015. Copies of the plans and planning permission are available from the agents or on Teignbridge planning website. There is a liability notice regarding Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) which is due upon commencement of development in the sum of 31,670.29 (subject to indexation changes), although there are exemptions to this charge for example for self-builders.

If you think you might qualify for relief, you should speak to the local authority as soon as possible, you should also seek their agreement to your formal claim before starting work on site, as in most cases, relief cannot be granted after development has commenced. Claims for a self build exemption (relating to a whole house) should be submitted on Form SB1-1: Self Build Exemption Claim Form: Part 1 and followed by further supporting information, when the development is finished, on Form SB1-2: Self Build Exemption Claim Form: Part 2


The freehold plot is being offered for sale by private treaty with offers invited in the region of 160,000.


Interested parties should make and rely upon their own enquiries of the relevant services providers.
