Residential Development Site. 3.68 acres of development land with outline planning consent for 33 dwellings. Potential for further dwellings (STP). 

DESCRIPTION An opportunity to acquire a site with outline consent for residential development.

The whole site extends to circa 3.68 acres with circa 2.57 acres forming the current residential application site and the remainder to be Public Open Space, just under half of this forming an equipped play area.

Planning consent has been granted subject to a Section 106 Agreement.

An indicative scheme layout was provided at the planning stage and this showed potential for 33 units.

The site includes an existing detached farmhouse which is available for sale by separate negotiation. If the farmhouse is not included within any sale, appropriate rights will be reserved for access and services.

LOCATION The market town of Glastonbury offers a wide variety of amenities to cater for shopping in the High Street and two local supermarkets. There is schooling to cater for infants through to secondary education with higher education available at the nearby Strode College in Street.

Street caters for a wider variety of shopping needs from its out of town shopping centre, Clarks Village.
The cultural City of Wells lies some 6 miles away.

Communication links are excellent, with access to the M5 some 15 miles distance and at Castle Cary, mainline trains run to London Paddington.

PLANNING Outline planning consent, application number 2013/0903, was submitted in April 2013 for re-development to provide 33 dwellings with all matters reserved, save for the means of access. In addition, a further application, number 2013/0924, was submitted for change of use of 0.45ha of land to public open space, marked red on the plan opposite.

Both these applications went to the Planning Board in February 2014. Both applications were granted consent, subject to a Section 106 Agreement being agreed.

The Section 106 Agreement stipulates as follows;
• 33% of the dwellings to be subject to an Affordable Housing Scheme.
• 80% of the Affordable Housing Scheme shall be provided as Social Rented Dwellings, with the remaining 20% as Shared Ownership.
• It is envisaged the Affordable Housing Units will comprise;

o 2 2-bed, social rent.
o 2 2-bed, shared ownership.
o 1 3-bed, shared ownership.
• Public Open Space Contribution of £5,000.
• Part of the Public Open Space, 0.19ha, to form a fully equipped play area.
• Public Open Space to be transferred to a management company or Glastonbury Town Council.

PROPOSED ACCOMMODATION Whilst the drawings are only indicative at this stage, it was envisaged the final development would comprise;
8 - Detached, 3/4 beds.
16 - Semi-detached, 2/3 beds.
5 - Terraced, 2 beds.
4 - Flats, 1 bed.
