Details 
The site consists of approximately 1.3 acres of development land with full planning permission granted on 24 November 2016 for 24 new dwellings. The local planning department is Melton Mowbray Borough Council and the planning application number is 14/00777/FUL. Of the 24 dwellings on the site, six of these properties are affordable dwellings as part of the section 106 agreement. The properties are all particularly generous in size ranging from 720 sq. ft. to 1,334 sq. ft. and the site is being offered on a freehold basis. There is a section 106 agreement in place which can be provided to any interested party detailing the contributions.

Viewing 
Viewing is strictly by appointment only. Please contact the office to arrange a site visit or direct further enquiries to Melissa Hopson 01664 563892 melissah@bentons.co.uk - 47 Nottingham Street, Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire, LE13 1NN.

Agents Note 
Please note a housing developer had a three year option agreement to acquire the site and as part of the deal acquired a small parcel of land (Plot 25 & Plot 26). This option has now lapsed. Therefore when referring to the full planning application for the purpose of this sale, Plot 25 & Plot 26 are not included within the sale. However we do not feel that this impacts in any way the future development of the site itself. The current owners of the land and any new subsequent owner has full rights to construct the road across the land edged blue on the plans and to have right of access over that land.
