An increasingly rare opportunity to acquire a well located cleared and secured plot with full planning consent for 6 new homes in a desirable semi-rural village situation with views to the Pevensey Levels.


For Sale by Informal Tender

Tender Deadline: 12 noon on 10th November 2017

The Star Garage Plot enjoys an easily accessible location off the south side of the A271 road in the desirable village of Boreham Street set on the edge of the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty backing onto open fields and enjoying views towards the Pevensey Levels Nature Reserve. Boreham Street has a local inn, tea shop and village hall with local shops and services within easy reach at Herstmonceux village, about 2 miles distant to the west offering a village store, post office, a range of independent shops, pubs, restaurants, medical centre and primary school. Boreham Street is served by public transport with bus services linking surrounding towns including Eastbourne, Battle and Heathfield.

The ancient Abbey Town of Battle is some 6½ miles distant to the east and has excellent high street shopping, a supermarket, local amenities, state schooling for all ages and an independent school, Battle Abbey School. Battle also has a main line train station with regular services to London (Charing Cross).

An increasingly rare opportunity to acquire a cleared, levelled and secured plot with full planning consent for six new homes. The proposed scheme allows for four detached four bedroom units and two semi-detached three bedroom units, all with allocated private parking and gardens. A further planning application has been submitted to Wealden District Council by the Vendor for garaging to serve the four detached units. Vehicular access to the finished development will be off Boreham Hill/A271 via a shared entrance drive leading to parking areas and garaging (subject to pp) set to the rear of the dwellings. Three of the detached units front Boreham Hill with the remaining units fronting Boreham Lane, all having independent pedestrian access at the front from the highway.
Present access into the development site is directly off Boreham Hill/A271 via a set of secure steel mesh gates with the site secured on all highway boundaries by 2.4m high timber hoarding with other boundaries being secured by existing boundary fencing/hedging or temporary fencing. A portable office/welfare unit is on site and can be included as part of any sale for the benefit of the purchaser.

Outline planning was granted under reference WD/2013/2079/O by Wealden District Council for six new homes on the site. An application for the outstanding reserved matters was approved on 9th March 2017 under reference WD/2016/2990/RM.

A large part of the conditions attached to the planning consent have already been addressed by the Vendor including Archaeology (7), Contamination (8 & 9) and foul drainage disposal (5 & 6) and the Vendor intends to submit an application to discharge conditions prior to the tender deadline date.

A further full planning application has been submitted to Wealden District Council by the Vendor under reference WD/2017/1982/F for the addition of four garages within the existing consented scheme to serve the detached dwellings only. A decision is expected early November.

All planning documentation is available upon request from the Vendor’s Agent.

Foul drainage from the site has been installed in agreement and cooperation of the local Environment Agency Inspector. A Deed of Easement has been executed with owners of adjoining properties to allow for access and maintenance of underground services to the plot.  The plot is served by an existing three phase power supply. Initial enquiries have been made of UK Power Networks to establish potential routes of supply for the connection
of mains power to the new development. UKPN have provided maps and purchasers are advised to make their own enquiries of UKPN as regards the cost of supply to serve the new dwellings within the proposed development.
An independent mains water supply is connected to the site.
