Full description

DESCRIPTION
We are favoured with instructions from The Blackburn Diocesan Board of Finance Limited to offer for sale on the basis of a contract conditional upon the buyer obtaining satisfactory Planning Permission to develop the hourglass shaped parcel of land which is allocated for residential development within the emerging Fylde Borough Council Local Plan together with the adjoining ancient woodland and an overall frontage to Ribby Road of 46m with the availability of the adjoining house, number 16 Ribby Road, Wrea Green, the totality of which is within the ownership of the seller.

The allocated land extends to 3.75 acres (1.51Ha) of which the northerly half was the subject of applications for 13 and 15 houses respectively by Redrow in conjunction with the adjoining Ricksby Grange development.

The previous Planning Applications were considered acceptable to the Local Planning Authority and a draft Section 106 was agreed between the parties but not completed following the breakdown of commercial negotiations between the applicant and the seller.

The seller has retained rights to utilise the roads and services constructed on the Ricksby Grange development subject to the agreement of an appropriate ransom sum which the seller will negotiate direct with the third party land owner thus offers are invited from developers on the basis that the seller will provide access from either of the two alternative routes shown on the attached plan.

PLANNING HISTORY
Full Planning Permission was granted by Fylde Borough Council for the adjoining site in December 2014 (14/0491), enabling the development of 42 dwellings.

Applications have previously been submitted for 15 houses and 13 houses on the Land (14/0880 and 15/0296). Both applications were considered acceptable to Fylde BC and a S106 was agreed between the relevant parties (but not completed). Those applications were withdrawn when commercial terms between the Vendor and applicant were not agreed.

The Vendor recognises that a purchaser may want to obtain full Planning Consent prior to the completion of any sale.

It is anticipated that a scheme based on the previously submitted schemes is likely to be acceptable to Fylde BC. The uncompleted S106 include provision for:

- 108,430 for primary and secondary education

- 8,333 per market dwelling as an Affordable Housing contribution or 2 Affordable Houses to be constructed on site

However, the southerly portion of the sellers open land is now part of the residential allocation within the Fylde BC emerging "Local Plan" provided an opportunity of reconsidering access solution, the provision of on site affordable housing and a reconsideration of the open vista issue factored in to the previous submissions.

LAYOUT
Copies of the schemes previously submitted are available on the Fylde BC website or on request. However, the Vendor does not have any rights to use or rely upon the information submitted within those applications.

TENURE
The Land is freehold.

ACCESS AND SERVICES
The anticipated scheme would use the current site access through the Redrow Homes development. Rights are available to use the road and services constructed in the adjacent site and Redrow Homes are under obligations to seek adoption of the same as soon as reasonably possible.

Services are available to the boundary, but capacity for the development of the site has not been specifically reserved, such that Purchasers would need to satisfy themselves as to the suitability of the available services.

GROUND INVESTIGATIONS
The site was purchased by the Vendor as agricultural land and has been used as such since that time.

No intrusive ground investigations have been undertaken by the landowner.

CIL
Fylde BC do not currently have an effective CIL Policy, although initial work has been undertaken to enable this to be forthcoming in due course. As such, early applications should be capable of determination without attracting CIL liability.

SALES PROCEDURE
The Vendor is seeking offers on the basis that the principle of residential use has been established on the site.

The Vendor will consider offers that are conditional on acceptable ground conditions and the Purchaser obtaining a suitable planning consent.

Offers should make any conditionality clear in the proposal and would preferably be accompanied by an indicative layout.

Offers should be made in writing/email to Richard Prest at Lea Hough & Co (Richard.Prest@leahough.co.uk - 01254 260196).

Following receipt of bids, a preferred purchaser will be chosen and will be allowed a short period of exclusivity (if required) to confirm assumptions and ground conditions.

On the expiry of the period, contracts will be exchanged for the sale of the land. As agreed between the parties, completion will either be shortly following exchange or on the receipt of full planning consent obtained by the Purchaser.

The total purchase price is to be payable on completion.

RICKSBY GRANGE ACCESS
The seller alone will conduct negotiations with the third party landowner if the successful bidder's preferred access is via Ricksby Grange to the east of the subject land.
