The sale offers an exciting opportunity to purchase a residential development site extending to 2.23 acres (0.90ha) in total, with benefit of Outline Planning permission for five residential dwellings (newly granted September 2019) set over 1.19 acres (0.48ha). The land that was not included within the Planning submission offers the potential to expand the site (subject to the necessary consents) and it is our understanding that informal discussions with the Local Planning Authority have already taken place to this effect.

The part of the site with benefit of Planning permission can be seen delineated BLUE.
