Full description

A freehold parcel of land situated in the historic town of Margate. The location of the site provides easy access to the neighbouring towns of Broadstairs and Ramsgate and is within walking distance to a range of amenities located on Ramsgate Road.

The land forms part of a larger site which was subject to a pre-application enquiry. This was submitted to the Local Planning Authority, Thanet District Council on 16th August 2016. The proposal was for the development of five single storey bungalows, each with an internal floor area of 90 sq.m. Three of the proposed bungalows are to be located on the land to be sold.

In their report responding to the pre-application, the Local Planning Authority state there is ‘...a current need for housing within Thanet.’ and ‘...a housing application should be considered in the context of the presumption in favour of substantial development’. With this in mind the report states that ‘...there is likely to be limited visual harm resulting from the proposed development.’ and ‘As such the proposed development would appear comprehensive and in keeping with the pattern of development in the area’.

Furthermore the Local Planning Authority state ‘the proposed development appears to be an adequate distance from the nearest neighbouring residential properties and, therefore, the impact upon neighbouring light and outlook is likely to be acceptable’.

The report concludes ‘On balance, the need for housing is considered to outweigh the impact upon the countryside in this instance’.

A copy of the pre-application report from the Local Planning Authority will be available for inspection at the Auctioneer's Office or within the legal pack.

It is considered the site may be suitable for development subject to a full application and all necessary consents being obtainable. Interested applicants are advised to make their own enquiries with the Local Planning Authority, Thanet District Council. Tel: 01843 577000. Website:
