A rare rural site close to Stow-on-the-Wold with planning permission for a replacement dwelling. With potential for development to residential or commercial use.

About this property

  • The use of the two buildings will remain in the same manner as the existing. A rural workers' dwelling subject to an occupational condition limited to those associated with the lairage enterprise occupying the site. A site office, also utilised in connection with the current business. The replacement buildings refer to one occupational dwelling and one site office, creating an additional 39m2 NIA residential accommodation and 9m2 office space on that of the existing.

    The site, which is accessed through secure double gates off the A429, comprises approximately 0.85 acres, predominantly hard surfaced (concrete and road planings) with a five bay agricultural barn, temporary office building, two shipping containers, toilet block and residential accommodation currently on site. There is low site density of approximately 15%.

    The accommodation comprises the following approximate floor areas:

    Agricultural Barn 2002.9 sq ft 186.07 sq m
    Office 228.5 sq ft 21.2 sq m
    Residential 1,138 sq ft 105.7 sq m

    In addition to the residential permission, the site benefits from the following planning approvals for new development:

    New warehouse of approximately 750 sq ft (B8 use) 20/02794/FUL

    Replacement stone office building on the site of the existing (approx. 376 sq ft)

    The site is currently operated by a haulage company which holds a license to operate eight lorries from the premises. We understand that there are no hours of use restrictions in relation to this.

    Utilities connections include mains water and broadband. Electricity is currently provided by solar panels and a generator. Quotes have been obtained to connect the site to the electricity supply along the main road. We are informed that 3 phase power could be available.

    The site could be suitable for a range of commercial uses subject to planning.

    Detailed planning permission was granted by Cotswold District Council under application ref: 20/02359/FUL dated 13 January 2021. The decision notice and plans are available on the Cotswold District Council planning portal.

    The property lies within the area administered by Cotswold District Council, to whom interested parties are advised to make their own enquiries in respect of any planning issues and development opportunities for the property.
