Full description

Summary:
Broadleaved deciduous woodland plantation located around 1.5 miles from Chesterfield Town centre. The woodland has a long frontage to Ashgate Road and return frontage to Loundsley Green Road and extends up to and adjoins land with outline consent for residential development.
A management scheme has recently been carried out to thin the woodland. The Plantation is designated as a Local Wildlife Site by Derbyshire Wildlife Trust.

Telecommunication Masts
There are currently three mast sites fronting to Ashgate Road. One of the mast agreements has been terminated and the apparatus is due to be removed. Lease agreements can be viewed at the Agent's office on appointment. The remaining two masts currently produce an income of circa £7,635 per annum.

The land which accommodates the masts (together with respective leases) can be bought separately.

Please state clearly when making an offer whether the masts are to be included.

Footpaths
There are no formal public rights of way

Tree Preservation Orders
The land is subject to the following Tree Preservation Orders:
Chesterfield Borough Council Tree Preservation Order 4901.64 reference W1 Ashgate Plantation (1969).
Derbyshire County Council Tree Preservation Order No 52 reference W1.

Easements and Restrictions
There are no easements or restrictions, but the property is sold subject to any which exist whether mentioned in these particulars of sale or not.

Tenure
Freehold

Overage
The sale of the land will be subject to an overage clause of 33% of any uplift in value (including that of associated amenity use) from that of existing woodland use for a period of 25 years.

Access and Viewing
Care should be taken if an inspection is made as there may be falling branches and tree and undulating ground. It would be appreciated if those undertaking inspection could be in in possession of a sales brochure.

Planning
Whilst the woodland is subject to Tree Protection Orders there may be an opportunity for it to be incorporated within residential development as amenity. Land west of the property has been earmarked in the draft Local Plan (Dec 2018) for 300 dwellings.
Investigations and discussions with the planning authority were carried out around 4 years ago to ascertain potential for gaining consent within the poorest area of woodland which would provide capital to fund management of the woodland and for the public to enjoy access.
