Tenure: Freehold

A rare opportunity for you to own a parcel of agricultural land within a much sought after area opposite a large detached house. The land benefits from good private track access from Westwood Lane, which joins the A3 that links the site to London and the M25 motorway.

The land is situated within the extremely affluent village of Wanborough. House prices in the area are 268% above the national average reflecting the desirability of the area as a place to own property - including land.

Wanborough lies within Guildford, part of the Greater London Built-Up Area. The Borough of Guildford has a significant need for housing and its proposed Local Plan published in June 2017 plans to build approx. 5,900 homes across Green Belt land.

LAND PRICES
Pasture land values in the region are 12% higher than the England & Wales average and some of the highest in the country.

The supply of farmland to the market last year was down 16% compared to the previous year, and down 8% compared to the 10-year average. Demand for land remains robust - especially from investors looking for more than a 'safe' investment in uncertain times - and this together with the diminishing supply, may help strengthen land values.

LOCAL DEVELOPMENT
The land is west of that which has received planning permission to demolish an agricultural barn and replace with a 450 sq.m. new house.

There is a significant demand for new housing in the region. The highest need is in the Borough of Guildford, which has a requirement of 654 new homes per year until 2033. The Borough of Guildford's Local Plan identifies how land is used, determining what and will be built and where. The proposed Local Plan published in June 2017 plans to build thousands of homes across several Green Belt sites.

These sites include; 1,800 new homes at Blackwell Farm part of the University of Surrey, at least 1,700 new homes at Gosden Hill Farm, 2,000 at the former Wisley Airfield and 400 at Garlick's Arch.

The proposed Blackwell Farm development within the Green Belt is just 2 miles from the land for sale. Plans include; 1,800 new homes; local amenities; an extension of the Surrey Research Park; retail units and business park; a primary school and a secondary school. Development on the fields of Blackwell Farm would leave "little hope for the rest of the green belt", a campaign group has said.

HOUSE PRICES
The land is situated in an extremely affluent area where land and property values are amongst the most expensive in the UK. House prices in Wanborough are 91% above the county average, 179% above the regional average and 268% above the national average. These premium house prices reflect the desirability of Guildford as a place to live and own property - including land.

PLANNING
As with all the southern half of the Borough of Guildford, the land is designated as an Area of Great Landscape Value. The land also falls within the Green Belt and the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). Any development would be subject to the appropriate planning permission.

OVERAGE
The land is subject to an Overage based on 20% of any uplift in value following the grant of planning permission for development other than for agricultural, equestrian or forestry purposes. The Overage period is 80 years.

LOCAL AUTHORITY
Guildford Borough Council

METHOD OF SALE
The land is offered for sale by private treaty. The freehold is available with vacant possession upon completion.
