Bottesford Road, Ashby

Offers around £700,000

  • Prime residential development potential
  • Regular shape and reasonably flat extending to 0.82 acres
  • Current planning permission for 12 dwellings
  • For Sale by informal tender

Prime freehold residential development opportunity occupying an excellent reasonably level site between Ashby and Bottesford within 2 miles of Scunthorpe centre.
Situated within a residential area where surrounding property is mixed, established and varied in type, age and values, this is a tremendous opportunity.
The site is well served by local amenities including the Ashby District Shopping Centre, neighbourhood shops, local health, education and leisure facilities.

Total site area is 0.33 hectares (0.82 acres) or thereabouts. (Site dimensions are for guidance only and interested parties are advised to undertake their own survey).

The site is regular and relatively flat and includes a detached individual 4 bedroom character home and a detached 2 bedroom bungalow and garages.

Services: mains gas, electricity and drainage are available in Bottesford Road, however interested parties should undertake their own enquiries with the appropriate agencies.

The site includes a detached house, bungalow, garages and surrounding land which has the grant of planning permission (PA/2020/211) for twelve dwellings being two blocks of five terraced houses and 2 semi detached bungalows.
The scheme provided by Keystone Architecture suggests that demolition of the detached bungalow is essential to facilitate the provision by the scheme.
The scheme allows for 2 "private driveway" type roads which includes the existing driveway to the south. This was done with the intention of excluding the detached house from the Keystone scheme. The scheme amongst other things makes reference to provisions for biodiversity management plan and meeting surface/flood water criteria.

This site however is now being offered to include the main house and its site area. This enables the scheme to be reconfigured to reflect the enhanced flexibility/density potential of the site and this may allow a more beneficial infrastructure arrangement subject to the agreement of the planning authority.
