A superb opportunity to purchase a plot with a planning area extending to approximately 0.29 acres (0.12 hectares) OTA of land at Raikes Farm, with the benefit of Permission in Principle for the erection of two dwellings. The area for sale is shown as per the enclosed site plan over-leaf outlined in red, and has a frontage of approximately 24.5 m and a maximum length of approximately 53.5m.
The plot obtained Permission in Principle under application number 06/2020/1286 as of the 21st
January 2021, from Preston City Council. The decision notice cover page is given with these particulars, along with additional planning documentation for reference. The full details of the Permission can be found via the Preston City Council Planning Portal using the previously mentioned application number.
Being located within open countryside as identified by the red circle on the location map included within these particulars, this site benefits from a rural setting with attractive views to the front and rear. It is bordered by trees and hedges providing privacy from existing neighbours, however, the site lies beyond the immediate bounds of the village and therefore benefits from only a handful of surrounding properties. The site has the advantage of roadside frontage on to Catforth Road which imparts excellent connectivity to the motorway network of West Lancashire including the M55 and subsequently the M6. Heading north, the Lake District is less than an hours drive away, meanwhile, Preston Town Centre can be reached inside 20 minutes making this site desirable to those wishing to commute.
A range of amenities including highly rated Primary and Secondary Schools are within easy reach.
It should be noted that the Permission in Principle accounts only for the location, proposed land use and amount of development. Further technical matters relating to design and access among others will have to be approved through further application to Preston City Council.
Development plots of this nature are not often offered to the market, therefore, this is a rare opportunity for a developer or individual to build two bespoke properties within a desirable rural location.
