This is a fantastic opportunity to acquire a 1.186 ha (2.931 acres) residential development site with outline planning permission for 32 dwellings situated in the South Hams market town of Kingsbridge. Situated within the town boundary and close to the town centre and Quayside, the site slopes from south east to the north west corner where a new vehicular entrance is proposed off Derby Road. From the proposed entrance an estate road will progress uphill providing access to all dwellings. The proposed dwellings will comprise a range of 2,3, and 4 bedrooms with associated living spaces and total floor areas ranging between c. 800 and 2000sqft. Included within the proposed scheme are low impact split level 'Eco' dwellings in a large central area of the site which is most prominent from surrounding aspects.
The ancient market town of Kingsbridge lies between Plymouth to the west, Torbay to the east and Dartmoor to the north and is the historic and natural centre of the South Hams. The modern town of Kingsbridge is actually made up of two medieval towns, Kingsbridge and Dodbrooke, originally a quarter of a mile apart. This increasingly sought after town lies in the South Hams, which has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with its rolling hills, wooded river valleys, patchwork fields, sandy beaches, a spectacular coast line and small picturesque villages. There are ample opportunities to walk, sail, surf, windsurf, fish, ride, golf etc. As virtually every sport and outdoor activity is well catered for. Regular bus services run between Kingsbridge and Dartmouth and Salcombe along with Plymouth and Totnes which both benefit mainline rail stations.
Outline planning application (Ref. 151902) was granted by appeal decision on the 5th June 2017 (Ref. App/K1128/W/16/3156062) for the development of 32 dwellings at Garden Mill, Derby Road, Kingsbridge. The outline consent included the approval of matters in relation to the access, appearance, layout and scale of the proposed development. The final matter reserved for future approval is landscaping and the vendors are currently (as of Feb 2020) applying for approval of the details of the landscaping. Once approved, there will then be 2 years from the date of approval of this last reserved matter to commence the development. A planning/technical pack is available upon request which includes all relevant planning documents and reports.
