Extending to approximately 2.99 acres (1.21 hectares) as is outlined in red on the site plan, the land is down to permanent grassland bounded by mature Devon bank hedges. The land is suitable for amenity or alternative uses, subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents.
Planning consent was granted by South Hams District Council (application reference - 3020/20/FUL) on 3 December 2020 for the erection of timber stables and a change of use of the land to equestrian purposes. The stable block in all will extend to 2 stables to include a store room. The stables are parallel with the main road, near to the entrance of the field and will also be located nearby to the mains water supply.
If you have any queries with the planning application, please do not hesitate to contact our in-house specialist planning team on 01803 869 921.
The land also benefits from having a shepherd's hut, which dates back to World War 1 as an army lorry chassis and was most likely towed by a steam engine later. The shepherd's hut extends to open plan living room and bedroom.
The land is accessed by means of a double gateway off the council maintained highway leading from Aish to Paignton. The gateway is particularly wide and can be easily parked upon with good vision splay in both directions too. SERVICES
