Full description

An exclusive and prime residential development opportunity in the popular village of Holt with outline planning approval for up to 24 dwellings. In total approximately 2.8 acres.

The site sits within walking distance of most of the local amenities that the village hs to offer, including county primary school, Bellis Brothers Farm Shop, general stores and a selection of public houses and restaurants. There are pleasant walks along the River Dee and in close proximity to the village, two championship golf courses and spa at Carden Park. In a wider context, Wrexham, a major centre for retail and commerce, is only approximately 5 miles away whilst Manchester and Liverpool airports and Crewe main line railway station are all within striking distance.

A Planning Obligation under Section 106 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 has been entered into.
