Agents Note

The land is situated in the 'Green belt' so planning permission for an alternative use is unlikely in the short term but may become possible in the long term. A development uplift clause will therefore be included in the sale contract . This clause will state that should planning consent be obtained for any use of the land other than agricultural or equestrian then 25% of any increase in value as a result of the planning consent will be reserved to the vendors for a period of 30 years.
