ASSESSMENTS and OUTGOINGS There may be some liability to South Holland Internal Drainage Board at present but in the longer term and following

development, the residential properties will be assessed for Council Tax.

INTERNAL DRAINAGE BOARD EASEMENT The Moulton River forms the East boundary of the site. The South Holland Internal Drainage Board have statutory Byelaw rights for maintenance, cleansing etc. normally within a 9 metres of the brink. Interested parties should make contact with the Board to clarify all rights that may be in force which will need to be reflected in the layout of the proposed development.

PREVIOUS HISTORY/DEMOLITION/SITE CLEARANCE This property was formerly used as an engineering works followed by potato merchants' business and more latterly, occupied for a garden products business. All buildings on site were subsequently demolished in 2018. Various consents and correspondence relating to the demolition at that time are available upon request from the Agents.

SEPARATE PLOT The plot fronting onto the north side of East Cobgate lies between numbers 10 and 14 on East Cobgate and is currently fenced. The measurements include a frontage of about 9.5 metres, a depth of 39 metres and an overall area of approximately 370 sq. metres. The plot is available together with the main site (as a whole) or if the main site is sold separately, plot No. 2 will be subsequently available as a separate Lot. Lot No. 2 will not be sold away from the main site until the future of that area has been legally completed.

RETAINED LAND In consideration of the potential future development of the land to the east of the Moulton River, the seller intends to retain a plot which will be sufficient in size, specification and appropriate location to either be used as a roadway access point to the land to the east, or to be developed into a dwelling at a later date. Rights to use the (adopted) estate roads and connect to service media will be provided by the Purchaser, with enough capacity to service a potential future development. The ability to connect will be without payment other than the actual cost of connection/upgrading etc.

Whilst service provision and capacities have not been investigated, we believe that mains electricity, water, drainage and gas are available in the locality. It is be the responsibility of interested parties to make their own investigations as to the availability, capacities, practicality of connection and costs of providing such services as they may require for development.
