2.42 acre development site with outline planning consent (two separate consents) for up to 16 dwellings on the edge of the popular village of Minsterley.


The site is on the northern edge of the village of Minsterley overlooking farmland. It has a gentle slope downhill to the north. The primary school, shops and employers are all within walking distance. There is a regular bus service between Minsterley and Shrewsbury.


Mains water is available at the site. Two foul sewer mains are within less than 20m of the site, one being in Horsebridge Road. A public surface water main is within 20m of the northern boundary. Superfast broadband is planned for Minsterley in the future. The selling agents have plans showing the water and sewer mains.


Outline planning consent has been approved under reference 14/03670/OUT for 15 dwellings to include access, subject to conditions and a completed S106 Agreement. This is on the area edged red on the sale plan and marked as Site 1. The Applicant has agreed that a pedestrian right of access will be allowed (as indicated shaded green on the plan) to serve the site. Halls have the consent and conditions. Outline planning consent has been approved under reference 14/0334/OUT for 1 dwelling (subject to a S106 Agreement)and a separate vehicular access (to include access and scale) following demolition of the existing buildings. The dimensions stated are 9.5m x 8m. This area is edged orange on the sale plan and marked as Site 2. The approved access is edged in green. It is envisaged the larger site for 15 dwellings can be used to access this area.The layout has not been approved within either of the consents.


Section 106 Agreements have been completed for each of the two approved sites to establish affordable housing. Both sites trigger affordable housing. The relevant current rate is 15%. An application has been submitted to alter the S106 on the site for one house.


Under current regulations the new open market (non-affordable) dwellings will trigger Community Infrastructure Levy, currently at £40 per square metre. Subject to meeting criteria the area of the existing buildings on Site 2 can be deducted for the purposes of calculating the CIL on the one approved dwelling on the area edged orange.


The buyer will be responsible for erecting and maintaining a 6 ft tall close boarded fence between points A and B (allowing for the pedestrian access under condition No 12 of consent no 14/03670/OUT) and C to D prior to starting construction.


A number of dwellings have historically used vehicular access over the area edged green. We are not aware of any formal rights being granted/established over the access edged green. Condition no 12 of consent 14/03670/OUT requires pedestrian access (or use of the red area only) to be granted along the track edged green.


The property is sold subject to and with the benefit of all rights of way, wayleaves and easements, whether mentioned in these particulars or not.


The freehold interest of the sites edged red and orange are for sale. This includes the access shaded green.


The sale is subject to;1) The purchaser fully complying with all of the planning conditions (including the pedestrian access), the Section 106 Agreement and Community Infrastructure Levy obligations.2) The purchaser demolishing the buildings3) The purchaser shall make its own enquiries into ground investigations and ability to connect to mains services.4) A restrictive covenant limiting development to 16 dwellings in total5) The purchaser providing and maintaining (in perpetuity) the pedestrian access edged/hatched green.
