Tenure: Freehold

THE SITE Fine & Country BSE are pleased to offer this ten acre potential development site within the popular Red Lodge location.

Red Lodge is a growing community administered by Forest Heath District Council. It has new homes from variety of building companies centred on the Kings Warren development at the northern end of the village. Currently, community facilities include an Ecumenical church, village hall and venue (known as the Millennium Centre), a sports pavilion with tennis courts, a five-a-side football pitch and allotments. A new school opened in September 2012 and the new village centre which opened in 2014 has a convenience store, fish and chip shop, kebab shop, and pharmacy. The Red Lodge Steakhouse Restaurant and Pub recently opened its doors too after an extensive refurbishment of the original pub building which is the oldest recorded building in the village.

The ten acre site is bordered to one side by the Taylor Wimpey development.

Currently on the site are located two large houses and ancillary buildings. If planning were successful these would need to be demolished or somehow brought into the development.

The site is being sold without planning however our client is willing to allow a committed buyer to purchase subject to the planning being agreed which our client is convinced will be allowed taking into account the proximity of the new build properties on the boundary line and surrounding area .

The village dates back to 1926 when the first houses were built, although the pub, Red Lodge Inn, is far older, having been recorded on a map of the site in 1885. It is thought to be a former hunting lodge dating back to the 17th century. The area where most of the new housing is situated was formerly a rabbit warren attached to Freckenham Manor lands, with a history dating back to the 13th century.
