DESCRIPTION The site comprises a gently sloping piece of land, formerly the gardens of Forest Hall, originally an impressive individual family home now requiring extensive refurbishment following fire damage.
SITE AREA The site extends to 1.45 acres (0.587 hectares). The extent of the property included in the sale is indicated in red on the Ordnance Survey plan reproduced with these particulars.
PLANNING The site is sold with planning consent for 11 dwellings and garages and refurbishment of the existing house. Consent was granted by way of a successful appeal on 5 January 2011 (appeal ref APP/24718/A/10/2136848). The current owner has since laid foundations to one of the properties thereby satisfying Condition 1 to start development within 3 years.
A copy of the appeal decision together with associated plans is reproduced within these particulars.
The approval is subject to a Section 106 agreement between the seller and local authority which provides for 30% affordable housing (not less than 60.55 square metres per unit) and a commuted sum payment of £33,000 to Kirklees Council in respect of public open space. A copy of the Section 106 agreement is available on request.
