About this property

  • Closing date for offers - 12 noon on Thursday 5th August 2021.

    The land at Tockwith extends to approximately 26.68 acres in a single field, west of the village and Business Park on the junction of Tockwith Lane and Roman Road. Moor Lane and Moorside Business Park form the western boundary.

    The level arable land is well suited to cereal and root crops, soils are classified as Grade 2 and 3 under the MAFF Provisional Agricultural Land Classification. The land is bound in part by mature trees and hedges, which add to the amenity and appeal. The southern field entrance off Moor Lane includes a useful hardstanding area.

    The land is located between two existing Business Parks and has medium to long term development potential (subject to the necessary consents).

    Subsidies & Grants
    The farmland is registered on the Rural Land Registry and Basic Payment Scheme (BPS) Entitlements are included in the sale. The Entitlements are currently held by and have been claimed in 2021 by the vendors. The selling agents will endeavour to facilitate transfer to the purchaser in readiness for the 2022 claim, the charge for which, will be £200+VAT. There are currently no active stewardship schemes in place over the land.

    Sale conditions

Excepted forms of development are agriculture (including renewable energy crops), equestrian, forestry or open field horticulture. The vendors may consider offers which amend or exclude the overage provisions.
