Finding the right place

Single Building Plot
Guide Price £40,000
This plot may be suited to a holiday let or an artist’s studio subject to planning. A Detailed planning consent has been granted on this plot for a detached replacement garage. The consent for the garage indicates a building 4.5 metres in height and 7 x 6 metres in dimension, being 42 square metres. This plot is in a quiet and picturesque village location close to the City of Wells. A previous application for the demolition of a garage and the erection of a new dwelling was refused and the planning inspectorate dismissed the Appeal. However, the planning inspector in the January 2016 decision has no objection in principle to the redevelopment of the site for residential purposes. The plot is within easy walking distance of the main amenities in the village.
The Site
The plot is approximately 1743sq.ft and is level in a quiet and elevated position away from the main road on a residential side street. The planning application previously submitted provided an Archaeological Assessment, Archaeological Statement and a Resource Efficiency Statement in addition to detailed drawings. The planning consent for the garage includes a topographical survey.
