Planning consent was granted by South Hams District Council (application number 3049/19/FUL) on 12 October 2020 for improved access, provision of a track and manege and since this consent was granted, the seller has constructed the sand school and improved access.
The full extent of the land is as approximately outlined on the site plan incorporated within the sales particulars.
With a combination of gentle and moderate south, north, east and west facing slopes the land is all down to grass and ideally suited as a pony paddock or for general recreation/amenity use, subject to gaining the necessary planning consents. SERVICES
