Planning
Wright Marshall has not formally investigated specific alternative uses for the farm premises and it is up to prospective purchasers to complete their own investigations, however, below we have provided our view on planning policy for guidance purposes only.

The Local Planning Authority is Cheshire West and Chester Council with relevant planning policies adopted in the Local Development Framework (29th January 2015) under section 28 (part 3) of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004, there is a requirement for all planning applications to be considered in light of the Development Plan (LDF) unless material circumstances indicate otherwise.

The National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) states a presumption in favour of sustainable development and within Chapter 3 and chapter 6 (paragraph 55) supports the re-use of rural buildings.

Local Planning Policies relevant to the site are set out in sections STRAT 1, STRAT 8, and STRAT 9 and the general consensus is that re-use of rural buildings is supported subject to certain criteria (such as design, scale and massing), providing the buildings are sound and have structural integrity.

It is our opinion that the traditional farm building at Grange Lane Farm would be suitable to be considered for a scheme of residential conversion, subject to a full planning application and assessment by the Local Planning Authority.

Fencing Liability

In the events of Lots 1, 2 & 3 being purchased by different buyers there will be obligations to erect and maintain post and three rail fencing on new boundaries within three months of completion of sale.

Easements and Wayleaves
The property will be sold subject to any Wayleaves, public or private rights of way, easements and covenants whether mentioned in these sale particulars or not. Lot 2 will have right of way over the shared part of the main drive.

Mode of Offering
The property is available as a whole or in Lots or combination of Lots as set out in these sales particulars and as the sellers and their agents may determine.

Reservation of Development Value

Lots 1, 2 and 4 will be sold subject to a reservation of development value in favour of the sellers amounting to 25% of any uplift in value due to the implementation of grant of planning permission for more than a single dwelling house on each Lot for a period of 20 years after completion of sale.
