LOCATION

The site is situated in an extremely convenient location within the settlement boundary of Billington immediately adjacent to Whalley New Road and approximately 700m to the south west of the centre of Whalley. Billington is located between the settlements of Langho and Whalley and whilst there is only a limited range of services and facilities in Billington a much wider range of shops and facilities can be found in Whalley. A location plan is attached at the back of these sales particulars. It is approximately 8km to the market town of Clitheroe and 11km to Blackburn Town Centre and there is easy access to the M65 and M6 and the wider motorway network beyond.

DIRECTIONS

Travelling east on the A59 leave the A59 at the Langho roundabout taking the second exit signposted to Whalley and Billington. Proceed for 1.3km to a mini roundabout. Proceed straight over the mini roundabout and immediately before the railway bridge turn left onto Dale View and proceed to the end of the estate road where you will see the GHA ¿For Sale¿ board.

Travelling west on the A59 leave the A59 at the roundabout to the north east of Whalley at the first exit signposted A671 Burnley and Padiham and then take the first right turn into Whalley. Proceed to the T junction and turn left. Proceed through the village straight over the mini roundabout and proceed over the River Calder into Billington. Turn right immediately after passing under the railway bridge.

DESCRIPTION

The development site comprises a relatively level parcel of agricultural land and former allotments which is located on the edge of the settlement of Billington and is shown edged red on plan Gel/454/1571/01. The site extends to approximately 4.31acres (1.74Ha) or thereabouts part of which 2.1acres (0.846Ha) or thereabouts has been granted planning permission for 21 dwellings (15 open market and 6 affordable) under two separate planning applications. The Council resolved on the 16 October 2014 to grant planning permission for a further 18 dwellings (13 open market and 5 affordable) on the remaining area of the site. There will therefore be planning permission for a total of 39 dwellings when the final approval has been issued.

Access to the land is via Dale View a modern housing development to the south of the site and involves no third party land.

The site has been subject to ground investigations which were commissioned by Bloor Homes. The ground report and a topographical survey can be made available to interested parties upon request.

PLANNING

Three planning applications have been submitted for the site and the attached plans show the layouts of each of the three applications. They are as follows:

Planning application: 3/2012/0065 was approved with conditions on the 5 November 2013 and was for the erection of 12 dwellings, 4 of which are affordable units and 8 are open market units.

Planning application: 3/2012/0738 was approved with conditions on the 1 November 2013 and was for the erection of 10 dwellings, 3 of which are affordable units and 7 are open market units. This application removed one of the approved dwellings from the 12 proposed for 3/2012/0065.
Planning application: 3/2014/0779 has not yet been approved as there has been a delay with the conclusion of the Section 106 Agreement, a copy of the report to Committee is attached. The application was for the erection of 18 dwellings, 5 of which are affordable units and 13 are open market units.

Copies of the two completed Section 106 Agreements are available upon request and copies of the two planning consents are attached as are layout plans for each of the three applications.


RIGHTS OF WAY &EASEMENTS

There are a number of footpaths crossing the site the location of which are shown on plan Gel/454/1571/01.

There are two sewers crossing the site to a pumping station the location of which are also shown on plan Gel/454/1571/01.

There is an existing surface water drain that was laid when the Dale View Development was built running through the site which will be available for use by the purchaser/s the location of which are also shown on plan Gel/454/1571/01.

Our knowledge of the site gained post securing the permissions would lead us to believe that it would be more efficient to develop the site around the existing foul drains and pumping station and not to seek to relocate the footpaths; however potential buyers will undertake their own assessment in this regard.

TENURE

The land is offered for sale freehold with vacant possession available on completion.

SERVICES

All mains services if not already on site should be immediately available but it is any prospective purchaser¿s responsibility to check what is available for the proposed development with the various utilities.
