Blackboys Nursery presents an exciting opportunity to acquire an attractive site on the western edge of the village of Blackboys, with full planning permission for three substantial family homes. The properties have been individually designed in a traditional vernacular Wealden style to complement the neighbouring properties and leafy setting. The plot is well screened from the road by mature trees and hedging, and the houses will benefit from generous plots set in established grounds with a number of existing specimen trees.

Planning permission
Planning permission was granted on 23 June 2016 for the 'Demolition of existing nursery and garden centre buildings, and erection of 3 new dwellings.'
Wealden District Council, ref: WD/2016/1030/F.

All properties will have Air Source Heat Pump systems to under floor heating. Concealed banks of solar PV panels will supply a large portion of the electricity. Mains electricity and water. Private drainage (septic tanks).

Agent's Notes
The site is subject to the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) although exemptions may be available to individual purchasers, looking to self build as their principal residence.
For exemptions and further information, visit PlanningPortal

A restriction is in place stating that all properties must be built substantially as designed, with the exception of minor internal alterations.

All of the glass houses and dilapidated structures on site are in the process of being removed. The existing dwelling will remain and is subject to a Section 106 in the form of an agricultural occupancy condition; consequentially no further land is available to acquire.

The owners of the existing dwelling will retain ownership of the main driveway, the three properties will contribute a reasonable amount to the maintenance of it.
