Full description

THE SITE
This well located parcel of prime development land fronts the main Exeter Road on the northern edge of the built up area of Dawlish. Access will be achieved by a new connection to the existing roundabout serving Sainsbury's. The land extends to approximately 11.25 hectares (27.80 acres) and is generally gently south sloping and comprises a mix of open grassland and a number of buildings proposed to be demolished as part of the development.

The land forms part of the larger DA2 allocation in the adopted local plan which requires an urban extension with a target of 25% affordable housing and a master plan has been approved which shows the land offered for sale as the gateway and principal access route.

DAWLISH
The town offers a variety of amenities including good shopping facilities with a new Sainsbury's supermarket on the north eastern fringe, primary and secondary schools, churches and public library. The local beaches are also a major attraction including those at nearby Dawlish Warren. There is a leisure centre with active local football, hockey and cricket clubs and activities in the area include bowls, tennis and walking. Fishing and sailing is available on both the Exe and the Teign Estuaries and there are golf clubs at both Teignmouth and Dawlish Warren.

Dawlish is located on the main London to Penzance railway line, the Cathedral City of Exeter is located approximately 12 miles to the north via the A379 which offers a comprehensive range of services and facilities together with the M5 & A30 connections and Exeter International Airport.

PLANNING
The site benefits from a grant of outline planning permission for up to 200 dwellings, 3 hectares of employment land including a 64 bed care home, highway works, demolition works to ancillary healthcare buildings, incidental and equipped open space including temporary SANGS. The permission was issued under reference 15/02700/MAJ on the 13th September 2016. The development is to provide 25% affordable housing along with various financial contributions set out in a S106 agreement and the site will be subject to CIL.

TECHNICAL
A full pack of technical information is available from the agents including copies of the planning permission, S106 agreement, planning documentation, utility information and geotechnical report.

SANGS
The section 106 agreement includes a potential requirement to provide a temporary SANG on land controlled by the Trust which will enter into a suitable licence agreement, if required, to ensure compliance with this requirement can be achieved.

EMPLOYMENT LAND
The grant of permission includes a further area of employment land which will be retained by the vendor. This land will be marketed separately in due course using its independent access.

VACANT BUILDING CREDIT
Prospective Purchasers should be aware of the provisions within the S106 Agreement which provide for the floor space of existing buildings within the residential site to be credited against the floor space of the proposed new dwellings i.e. affordable housing contributions are only required for the net increase in floor space.

CIL - "IN-USE BUILDINGS"
Prospective Purchasers should be aware that many of the existing buildings on site may qualify such that they can act as credit or offset against the "chargeable development" CIL charge.

METHOD OF SALE
The land is offered for sale by way of informal tender with a closing date of midday on Friday 28th October 2016 with offers in an envelope clearly marked "Project: Land Disposal Langdon Hospital" and addressed to Melanie Walker, Chief Executive, Devon Partnership NHS Trust, Wonford House, Dryden Road, Exeter, EX2 5AF.

Prospective purchasers are invited to put forward offers for either the whole property or the care home site or the residential development site as the vendor will actively consider a sale of the whole property to a single purchaser or splitting the sale into separate transactions.

The sale of the land will be subject to VAT.
