Planning Note - The insert which forms part of this sales brochure comprises an Assessment published in January 2016 as part of the public consultation process in respect of the proposed South East Lincolnshire Local Plan. The Assessment identifies those sites in Bicker which have been put forward for development. Some of these sites are considered 'Developable' whilst most are considered by the planning process as 'Undevelopable'.

It will be noted from the assessment that part of Friest Cottage comprising 0.1 Ha (a quarter of an acre) is considered 'Developable' in year 6 to 10. (Nb the development period started in 2011). Subject to complying with restrictions, in our opinion there will be prospects of obtaining planning approval to redevelop the whole site and not just that part to the left hand side of the cottage, once the local plan has been approved (anticipated during 2017). In the meanwhile, the Local Planning Authority is unlikely to support a planning application based on enquiries already made.

The buyer will be expected to exchange contracts within a reasonable time-scale. Proposals to exchange contracts conditional on the grant of planning permission will not be entertained.

Directions - Turn off A52 (Boston to Grantham) at the signpost to Bicker (Drury Lane junction, not the Donington Road/Red Lion junction). The cottage is about 200 yards on the left, just past the bus stop.
