General Description

Smiths Property Experts offer to the market a site with planning consent granted for residential development on the fringes of Charnwood Forest in the village of Whitwick. The site covers an area of approximately 0.75 acres and has planning permission granted for the erection of five dwellings. The proposed development will have a footprint of around 3,100 square feet, with a gross floor area of approximately 5,000 square feet. The development will comprise of a mix of single-storey bungalows and two or three-storey houses. As an agent, we feel there is strong potential to expand on the granted permissions with a further detailed application, subject to the necessary planning consents and approvals.

The site will have a private roadway from Leicester Road, and whilst a purchaser should satisfy their own enquiries in this regard, we believe that services are all readily available either in Leicester Road or already on the site. To the Easterly edge of the site is a current vehicular access and substantial brick-built detached triple garage. The building is in good and serviceable order and would be ideal for a Site Office, store, or similar use. Subject to a variation to the planning consent, the building could have value to the end development by way of residential, stores or garaging.

The Location

The site is located on the edge of the locally revered Charnwood Forest. There is a full host of amenities in the village and there is easy access to Loughborough, Leicester and Ashby-de-la-Zouch. The site is surrounded by a mature residential area, and open countryside is just a short walk away. There is excellent access to good local schools, and it’s easy to commute to Birmingham, Nottingham and London and their associated airports via the excellent road and rail networks.

Planning Permission
