Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The subjects are located on the northern edge Galashiels to the east of the A7, approximately 1 mile from the town centre. Galashiels is approximately 33 miles south of Edinburgh and is the principal town in the Scottish Borders. Galashiels has a resident population of circa 15,000 people and provides services for a
wider catchment area and the villages of Melrose, Gattonside and Stow to name a few. Services in Galashiels include supermarkets,
banks, professional services, local and national retailers, primary and secondary schooling and a new railway station opened in September 2015 as part of the Edinburgh to Tweedbank Borders Railway.

The subjects occupy an elevated position to the east of the A7 public road. The site is west facing and slopes downhill from east to west.
The subjects are currently laid to grass and extend to approximately 10.87 acres (4.40 hectares). The site is bounded to the west and
north by agricultural land, to the east by agricultural hill ground and to the south by residential properties at Hillside Drive. The site does not presently have a vehicle access and it is proposed that any future development of the site would be accessed directly from the A7 south of Hillside Drive.

The subjects are allocated in the Scottish Borders Consolidated Local Plan 2011 and the proposed Local Plan for 60 houses, ref:
EGL17B. Furthermore, the site benefits from planning permission in principle for residential development granted in 1975 that has been enabled by the commencement of works on site. Accordingly, the consent is live in perpetuity. Correspondence with Scottish Borders Council
(SBC) Planning Department confirming that as a result of the implementation of this consent that no development contributions would be sought from the Council, provided the number of units
developed on site does not exceed the number of units currently consented (approximately 60 units). Development contributions will be sought for any units above the currently permitted 60 units. A copy of the correspondence from SBC is contained in the technical information pack.

Connections of mains electricity, gas, water and drainage are available nearby. Plans showing the location of service infrastructure are available in the technical information pack.
