2 Acre site of Woodland Including access road
The site is densely covered by mature trees including the Elm and Mulberry varieties. It is delineated principally by a high stone wall of considerable value with gated entrance and furthermore by raised earth bankings.
The woodland includes some fruit trees in its lighter areas and there are remnants of the original garden paths.
The site extends to approximately 1.91 acres (0.78Ha) or thereabouts excluding its lengthy access track.
We understand the tenure of the site to be freehold with vacant possession.
The vendor wishes to include an overage clause within the transfer permitting a claw back of any increase in market value as a consequence of a future planning consent for a change of use.
All mains services are believed to be available either within or adjacent to the site.
Town & Country Planning
The site is allocated as Green Belt within the Local Development Plan adopted by Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council in January 2019.
In 2005 an application for outline planning consent for residential use was refused by the Local Planning Authority. The application reference B/05/0452/DA, was subsequently dismissed on appeal. (Appeal Reference APP/R4408/A/05/1186534).
We understand that the trees on site are the subject of a blanket Tree Preservation Order.
All interested parties are invited to make their own enquiries of Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council.
