HIGH QUALITY RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT SITE WITH OUTLINE PLANNING PERMISSION GRANTED FOR 5 DETATCHED HOUSES ON THE EDGE OF THE POPULAR VILLAGE OF SHADOXHURST.
This site offers a quality opportunity to develop an exclusive scheme of 5 dwellings based upon the outline
planning permission that has been granted. There is scope to increase the number of dwellings based upon
the size of the site subject to the necessary consents being obtained. The owners are looking to sell the site
with the benefit of the existing planning permission with an overage clause in the event that additional
dwellings are consented.
The site is located on the south east edge of Shadoxhurst, a popular village situated 5 miles to the south of
Ashford. The village benefits from a good range of local facilities including a village shop, post office, public
house and village hall.
Ashford provides a good range of retail, education and leisure facilities and the high speed link from Ashford
International Station has a regular service to London St Pancras in 37 minutes. The M20 is approximately 5
miles to the north connecting into the national motorway network.
Description and site area
The site comprises an irregular shaped parcel of land occupied by a number of redundant farm buildings
with access from Hornash Lane.
Hornash Lane leads into the village centre to the west and there is predominantly linear development along
the south side of the lane. To the south and east is woodland and open countryside and to the north is a
single detached dwelling and woodland.
The site extends to approximately 2.37 acres (0.96 hectares).
Planning and Development Proposals
Outline planning permission has been granted by Ashford Borough Council for 'the erection of five residential
dwellings, with demolition of existing agricultural buildings with all matters reserved other than access from Hornash
Lane''. The planning reference is 18/01247/AS.
The plan submitted with the planning application shows a scheme for 6 detached dwellings although it was agreed
between Ashford Borough Council and the owners that the scheme would be reduced to 5 dwellings. There were no
drawings submitted to show this layout. Accordingly, the purchaser will have considerable flexibility to design a scheme to
maximise the site's potential.
There is no mains foul drainage in the immediate vicinity so an on-site foul drainage strategy will be required. The
purchaser will be required to provide access to the adjoining property known as Elite to the immediate west of the
site which is owned by the site's owners. The plans show a joint access from Hornash Lane.
Services and Tenure
Purchasers are advised to make their own enquiries with the relevant statutory authorities to ensure availability and
sufficient capacity at the site in order to service any proposed development. The site is to be sold on a freehold
basis with vacant possession upon completion.
The vendor has carried out a considerable amount of due diligence on the site and all the reports and investigations are available to view and download from our website www.rpcland.co.uk. The following information is available: Plans Planning, Design & Access Statement Arboricultural Report Transport Statement, Preliminary Ecological Appraisal, Bat Survey, Reptile Survey Report, Foul & Surface Water Management Strategy.
