Additional information

  • The Waveney Local Plan, as adopted in March 2019,
  • allocates the land for residential development. The
  • allocation supports 60 units, including affordable
  • housing and open space. Of the 4.82 hectare allocation,
  • 2 hectares is allocated for development at a net density
  • of 30 dwellings per ha (12 dwellings per acre).
  • As per Policy WLP8.2, 30% of the residential units must
  • be affordable. Whilst there is no specific wording on
  • the mix of affordable housing, Policy WLP8.1 refers to
  • 35% of the residential units within new developments
  • are to be 1 or 2 bedrooms (unless it can be satisfactorily
  • demonstrated to be unfeasible). It is therefore assumed
  • that the majority of affordable housing is to be 1 or 2
  • bedrooms.
  • Mains electricity, water and drainage are understood to
  • be available to service the site. Interested parties should
  • satisfy themselves that these services are available for
  • connection and are adequate for their own intended
  • purposes.
  • The site is sold subject to and with the help and benefit
  • of all existing rights, including rights of way, whether
  • public or private, light, support, drainage, water and
  • electricity supplies and other rights, easement, quasi-easements
  • and all wayleaves whether referred to or not
  • in these particulars.
  • There is an underground pipe leading from Chatten
  • Close to an attenuation pond, which is located to the
  • north of the site. This is subject to a Deed of Easement
  • between the vendor and Hopkins Homes, being the
  • historic developers of Chatten Close. Responsibility
  • currently falls on the vendor to maintain the pond, but
  • this liability will be passed onto the purchaser of the
  • land.
