Prime Residential Development Opportunity
The site is situated about 0.8 miles to the west of the market town of Epping, in the County of Essex. Epping is situated approximately 6 miles west of Waltham Abbey and approximately 17 miles north-east of Central London.
The town lies circa 4 miles (7 minute drive) from Junction 26 of the M25, providing road links onto the M11 and into London and the rest of the country. The site is located just over a mile from Epping Underground Station which provides direct links into central London via the Central Line with commuting times of under 40 minutes. Epping benefits from a range of services and amenities including, shops, restaurants and several primary and secondary schools. The ancient Epping Forest which wraps around the town provides huge opportunities for recreation activities.
The site is accessed via a private road off Eppings main through road (High Road) opposite Bell Common Cricket Ground and comprises a former farmyard with traditional Essex barns, cattle shed, grain store, hay/machinery store, slurry tank and extensive associated hard standing. The site is broadly rectangular in shape and measures approximately 5.9 acres (2.4 ha).
The site is bound by agricultural land to the north, east and south, with a private road serving neighbouring properties forming the western boundary from which access is taken. New Farm Cottage sits in the southern corner of the site and is available via separate negotiation.
The site benefits from Prior Approval for a proposed Change of Use to 3 dwellings under class Q (Reference: EPF/2246/19).
Positive pre-application feedback has also been received from Epping Forest District Council for residential development to form a total of 6 dwellings. Two potential options have been proposed and assessed by the Council.
The first option is for the conversion of historic Essex barns fronting the access to form 3 dwellings including the approved Class Q permitted development and the demolition of modern farm buildings. The second option is for the conversion of historic barns to form 3 dwellings and demolition and redevelopment of the existing farm buildings to provide 3 new build dwellings. Both options propose a total of 6 units.
