A prime residential building site with outline planning permission for nine dwellings. The plan approved is for three detached houses and six semi-detached houses. The scheme will undoubtedly meet a local and regional market with house prices in the popular range.

The site is predominantly level ground within a pleasant established residential area. There is a primary school just opposite and very good local amenities within this popular and generally high property value area.

The site has outline planning permission granted by Bassetlaw District Council 5th September 2017. The development must begin within two years.

The village of East Markham is a sizable settlement situated just off the A57 and convenient for commuting to Newark, Lincoln and Retford. Access points to the A1 at Markham Moor are within a couple of miles. There is a very good choice of secondary schooling within the area including the excellent Tuxford Academy, approximately 2 miles. The village therefore is a good choice for young people and families whilst also appealing when the opportunity arises to downsizing. We consider therefore the design concept will meet a wide range of the market.

Outline planning permission is granted under Bassetlaw District Council Ref:- 1700917/OUT with all matters reserved for the erection of up to nine dwellings with associated parking and works. The consent is dated 5th September 2017. A copy of the planning permission together with the plans and documents may be obtained from Richard Watkinson & Partners or viewed on the Bassetlaw District Council website:

There is a poultry shed on the site of timber construction with a corrugated asbestos type roof.

The CIL will be calculated when detailed plans are approved.

The development is planned for three detached three bedroomed houses which we estimate could have a floor area of approximately 1200 sq ft each and six pairs of semi-detached houses which we estimate could have a floor area of 900 sq ft approximately.

The development will meet a significant shortage and anticipated firm demand from first time buyers and perhaps also younger family purchasers for the detached houses.

The scheme includes a parking area which is designed to provide additional amenity parking in the area for the school and residents.

We understand mains water, electricity and drainage are available in East Markham, but purchasers should make their own enquiries regarding the technicalities of connection.

The land is freehold.

The land shall be sold subject to an overage agreement. In the event of more than 9 residential units, developed within a period of 15 years from the completion of the sale, an overage payment shall be made on commencement of that further development representing 50% of the enhanced value of the land developed, where (A) shall equal the enhanced land value, (B) shall equal the existing use value of the land and (A) - (B) x 50% shall equal the overage payment.

Vacant possession will be given on completion.

An Ordnance Survey Promap is attached to these particulars outlining the site in red. Also attached is the illustrative sketch layout.
