    Residential development site with outline planning permission for nine residential dwellings

    About this property

    • Waterleat is a vacant residential dwelling with outline planning permission for 9 residential dwellings. The site is rectangular in shape extending to 0.24 HA (0.59 acres), with the existing property situated in the centre of the site. The land is relatively flat from north to south across the site, with the site accessed from the south east off High Street. It is bordered by the main road to the south and residential properties to the north, east and west.

    Local information

    • Waterleat is located in the centre of Newton Poppleford, to the north of the High Street (A3052) with access directly off this road.
    • The road provides access west to Exeter and the M5 and south west to Sidmouth and Seaton. The closest railway stations are situated at Whimple and Topsham which provides train services to Exeter St Davids. This station then provides mainline services to Honiton, Exmouth, Plymouth, and London Paddington.
    • Exeter Airport is located about 6.4 miles north west of the site and provides scheduled and chartered flights to a range of national and international destinations.

    Additional information

    • Planning - The site was granted planning permission on 7th October 2019 (ref: 16/0218/OUT) and benefits from outline permission for residential development comprising the erection of 9 dwellings including 4 x no. 3 bedroom semi-detached houses and 5 x no. 3 bedroom terraced houses.
    • S106 - Following a financial viability assessment, it was demonstrated that no payment in lieu of affordable housing could be provided as part of the outline planning application. As part of the S.106 agreement the reserved matters application will be subject to a viability appraisal as detailed in Schedule 1 Part 1 of the agreement.
    • CIL - CIL is payable in East Devon at a rate of £125 per sq m on all net additional floor space provided on site. Under the current outline application the net additional floor space totals 516 sq m, meaning a CIL payment of £64,500 would be due.
    • Access - The proposed site access currently sits on land outside of the existing title as detailed in the brochure. As part of the sale process, there will be a land transfer from the adjacent house known as Milestone (title number DN423049) with the extent of the land to be transferred detailed in the Technical Pack. As part of this land transfer there will be an obligation on the developer to move the boundary fence within 2 months of completion, and to provide access rights and a gated access into Milestone upon completion of the first dwelling.
