Property description

The land is roughly square in shape, laid to rough grass with

hedgerow and fencing to the boundaries. To the centre of

the site is a timber frame agricultural style building currently

used as a workshop/store. It is understood that mains water

is available on site although there is no gas nor electric

connected thereto. We are advised that all mains services

are available from West Avenue/Windermere Avenue.

The site is surrounded by agricultural land (allocated for

residential) to the east, south and west, with residential

accommodation to the north generally being large

detached houses.


Hullbridge is located to the north of Rayleigh and Hockley,

both of which have mainline rail stations running into

London. Hullbridge is also within easy access of the A130

and A127 trunk roads.

The subject property is located to the south of Windermere

Avenue/West Avenue on the western side of Hullbridge.

Local shopping and community facilities are located along

Windermere Avenue and Ferry Road, although the area is

otherwise residential in nature. Riverside County Infant and

Junior Schools are located a short distance from the property (Ofsted "Good" February 2013). The river Crouch runs to the north providing boating and leisure opportunities.

Site Area

The site extends to an area of approximately 1.235 acres /

0.50 hectares. Solicitors to confirm exact boundaries.


Pre-application meetings have been held with Rochford Council relating to a proposed scheme of 19 houses

(Ref: Pa/17/00089/preapp). The scheme proposes 11 No. 4 bedroom detached houses with integral garage and parking, one pair of 3 bedroom semi-detached houses with parking, and 6 No. 2 bedroom terrace houses with parking. Copies of the proposed scheme and the pre-application response from Rochford Council can be made available to interested parties, although you should satisfy yourselves as regards planning potential and density on site.

The site is included within the Local Development

Framework Allocations Document reference SER66 forming

part of a larger opportunity providing 500 dwellings and

supporting infrastructure

Land adjacent to the subject site is the subject of a planning

application (Ref: 17/01019/ful) for a scheme comprising 6 No. 4 bedroom houses, 2 No. 4 bedroom chalet bungalows and 2 No. 4 bedroom bungalows. The application was submitted in October 2017 with a target determination date of 13 April 2018.

Of more relevance is the larger planning application (Ref:

14/00813/out) which appears to have been granted January 2017 granting outline planning permission for 500+ dwellings on land between Windermere Avenue and Lower Road which has, we understand, been sold to a national house builder.


The site is available to be purchased freehold with vacant


Bid Process

Offers are sought on an unconditional basis for the freehold

interest in this site although our clients may consider subject

to planning proposals.
