The land falls in the jurisdiction of Rushcliffe Borough Council. This and surrounding land forms part of an adopted allocation for circa 3,000 houses and a direct access onto the newly upgraded A453. The site also benefits from a Resolution to Grant planning following the submission of a planning application, subject only to the completion of the Section 106 Agreement.
Much planning work has been carried out already, and it is known what obligations the Local Authority would like to see within the Section 106 Agreement, which will be referred to in more detail later on in these particulars. Therefore, it is possible to get an implementable consent quickly.
Under the current Master Plan, the land for sale will be mostly housing with some landscaping.
