- Unique Development Opportunity
- Fantastic Location close to the Coastal Town of Skegness
- Benefitting from permitted development rights, which has now been triggered
- Option to purchase or rent an additional 1 acre (or thereabouts) of land adjoining the property
This is a unique opportunity to acquire a character building in a highly desirable location on the edge of Skegness. The permitted development rights have since been triggered, giving prospective purchasers time to complete the development in their own time. With the option to purchase or rent an additional 1 acre (or thereabouts) of land, it makes it a highly desirable property.
Permitted development rights were granted on 28 October 2016 and under the Town & Country Planning Act 1990, it states that the development must begin within a period of three years started with the prior approval date. We have been made aware by the Vendors that this has already been triggered and the permitted development rights remain live.
A copy of the decision notice is attached to these particulars for reference. Should any further documentation be required please contact the Agent’s Skegness Office or visit East Lindsey District Council’s online planning portal and search for Application No. S/039/01740/16.
The site is to be accessed directly off the A52 via a new access which has not yet been created. Full planning permission for the new access was granted on 17 March 2020 and development of this access must be begun no later than three years from this determination. Currently there is no boundary fence demarcating this access, however, this fence is to be erected at the expense of the Purchaser within 6 months of completion. For the new access, the vendors have allocated a width of six metres, as shown on the overleaf plan, and they shall allow the purchasers to use the existing access for up to 6 months from completion.
The curtilage of the yard and buildings extend to approximately 0.35 of an acre, as shown edged red on the attached plan. In addition to this the vendors will make available to purchase an additional 1 acre or thereabouts of land (as edged blue on the attached plan). The land is currently growing a crop of forage maize and will be left as bare stubbles. Currently there is no boundary fence demarcating this area and this boundary fence is to be erected at the expense of the Purchaser within 6 months of completion. Prospective Purchaser’s should make their own enquiries as to the change of use from Agricultural land.
The buildings comprise of a traditional brick built agricultural barn, predominantly roofed with pantiles, but a proportion of the roof is covered with corrugated sheets. There has been an additional lean-to ‘extension’, which is of timber construction with corrugated sheet roof.
We understand that mains water is connected to the property and mains electricity is within the locality. Drainage will need to be to a private system and prospective purchasers should make their own enquiries as to the availability of all services.
The property is sold subject to and with the benefit of all easements, wayleaves and rights of way whether public or private, light, support, drainage, water and electricity supplies and all other rights and obligations, easements, quasi-easements and all wayleaves whether referred to or not mentioned in these particulars.
These have been prepared as accurately as possible and are based on Ordnance Survey Plans and although believed to be correct are for guidance and identification purposes only.
The property is being offered for sale Freehold with Vacant Possession upon completion.
Should the prospective Purchasers complete on the property and additional land prior to the harvesting of the current growing crop, the Vendors reserve the right to have a hold over to allow them to harvest the crop of maize.
