BEST AND FINAL OFFERS invited by 12 noon Friday 19th August 2016. Further details from the selling agents.

The land lies to the south of the village Woodborough and is accessed directly off Charnwood Way. Woodborough is a small village situated between Nottingham and Southwell and benefits from a wealth of local amenities.

The sale presents a rare opportunity to acquire a block of ring-fenced land on the outskirts of Woodborough village with scope for a range of potential uses, from agricultural / equestrian to leisure and recreational purposes (subject to necessary consents).

Classified grade 2 as recorded in the soil survey of England and Wales, the soils belong to the Hodnet series, which is typically described as reddish fine and coarse loamy soils with slowly permeable subsoils and slight seasonal water logging. The Hodnet series are generally suited to the growing of cereals, some sugar beet and potatoes and grassland. The land is bordered by mature hedgerows and trees.

The land (in part) has previously been identified in the Nottingham City Council Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (Site Reference: 660). The assessment concluded that the site could be suitable for 15- 20 dwellings with the existing access provisions and that "a decision to amend Green Belt boundaries would need to be taken and as such the site will be classed as suitable if policy changes".

We are not aware of any services being connected to the land.

The land is available freehold subject to an informal cropping licence. Further details are available from the sole agents.

The uplift clause shall not be triggered by any development for agricultural and / or equestrian purposes.
