An exciting opportunity to acquire a residential development site benefitting from detailed planning permission for the redevelopment of the site to provide four dwellings.
Site Area 0.35 acres (0.14 hectares)
- Prime residential development opportunity - Full planning permission granted - Situated circa 1.9 miles from Huntingdon Railway Station and approximately 20 miles from Cambridge - For sale by Informal Tender - Offers sought on an Unconditional basis
Location The site is located in the village of Hartford, situated circa 1.4 miles to the north-east of the thriving market town of Huntingdon and approximately 20 miles north-west of Cambridge. Huntingdon benefits from a wide range of shops, employment, services and leisure facilities, including two secondary schools, higher education and a hospital.
Huntingdon Railway Station, which is on the Great Northern Route, is situated circa 1.9 miles to the south-west of the site. The station provides direct services to London Kings Cross, with journey times of about an hour. There are also a number of bus stops within close proximity to the site, situated on both Main Street (B1514) and Sapley Road. The Guided Busway provides services to Huntingdon (including the train station) and Cambridge.
Site Description The site extends to circa 0.35 acres (0.14 hectares) and currently comprises a 218m2 vacant detached two-storey Victorian building, which was previously occupied by a school, with a large area of hard standing to the south. It is bound by residential properties to the north, east and south and School Lane to the west, from which access is taken.
Planning The site is situated within the jurisdiction of Huntingdonshire District Council and benefits from full planning permission, granted on the 25th January 2021 for the change of use and conversion of existing school building (D1) to 2 no. 3 bed dwellinghouses (C3) and erection of 2 no. 2 bed dwellinghouses (C3) (reference: 19/00937/FUL).
However, it should be noted that there has been an administrative error in the text of the application and on a few of the documents, including the Decision Notice, it suggests the planning permission is for 4 x 3 bed units. This could prove favourable on the basis that the purchaser wishes to seek an amendment.
The GIAs of the approved units are as follows: Unit 1 3B6P 137m2 Unit 2 3B5P 133m2 Unit 3 2B4P 79m2 Unit 4 2B4P 79m2
CIL will be payable at a rate of £126.93 per m2 after indexation.
