Barrier Bank, Cowbit, PE12 6AQ

Residential Development Opportunity

Guide Price £450,000


The property is located close to the historical centre of the village of Cowbit, lying only 3 miles south of Spalding and with easy access via the A16 or Barrier Bank. The property has for many years been owned by the Higham Family and historically it was the village Post Office, General Stores, Petrol Filling Station and a separate cobbler's shop in the 1920's and 1930's. At present it comprises a detached 3 Bedroom house which would require very extensive refurbishment if it was to be retained, together with a semi-detached former cottage which will require demolition to facilitate the proposed new development.

The Land runs to the rear of the house with gardens, paddock and former farm/livestock buildings.

The offering of this property provides an opportunity to create an attractive and individually designed development of residential properties in a very convenient and attractive location. The property is available with the benefit of vacant possession and extends in total to about 2.6 Acres ( 1.05 Hectares) including the part having the benefit of consent plus the Paddock areas to the rear.

BOUNDARY
It should be noted that the immediate left-hand boundary on viewing the site from the public highway does not quite align on the ground with that shown on the indicative outline planning consent plan. Interested parties should be aware of this as part of their enquiry process.

PETROL TANKS
There are some underground former petrol storage tanks just inside the front right-hand boundary. We are advised these petrol tanks were decommissioned by Shell Petroleum when they ceased supplying petrol to the property. The decommissioning was arranged and paid for by Shell. They were decommissioned by being pumped dry and the air space being filled with sand by contractors.

PUBLIC SEWER
There is a public sewer main running across the property which is shown (very approximately and for indicative purposes only) with a dotted brown line on the plan attached to these particulars. Interested parties should research details on these as part of their pre-offer process.


PLANNING MATTERS Outline Planning Consent was granted by South Holland District Council under Application Reference No: H01/0571/22 dated 28th October 2022. The present consent limits the development to not more than 7 dwellings. There are also a number of important conditions which interested parties should research as part of their enquiry process. A copy of the Outline Consent and the original Application can be forwarded upon request. The area of the property being the subject of the Outline Consent extends to about 0.8 Acres (0.32 Hectares).

It should be noted that the Outline Planning Consent obtained relates to part of the site - the rear paddocks were not included in that application/consent.


UPLIFT / CLAWBACK PROVISION Notwithstanding that the present outline consent limits the development to 7 No. units on part of the property, should the number of developed properties exceed 7 No. in total on any part of the property now being offered for sale, this will be covered by an uplift/clawback provision to be inserted in the sales documentation reflecting that any increase in the numbers above 7 No. will be subject to such provision for a period of 25 years and at the rate of 35% of the increase in value, consequent to the additional unit numbers being consented/built.

TENURE The property has the benefit of freehold tenure.

POSSESSION It is offered with the benefit of vacant possession upon completion.

REGISTERED TITLES The land is registered under LL378230 & LL378231 - Copies of the Registered Titles and the plans are available from the Selling Agent upon request.

SERVICES Whilst not presently connected, the house was previously connected to mains electricity and water. Drainage is to a private system immediately to the rear of the house. There is no mains gas connected.

Interested parties must make their own specific enquiries with the relevant service providers to obtain the necessary information with regarding to servicing a new development including the proximity of services, the availability of capacity and the cost/practicality of connection.

RETENTION It should be noted that the electric AGA in the kitchen and the former Royal Mail Post Box in the front of the house, together with a concrete water trough will be retained by the vendors. These will be removed prior to completion.
