A village residential development site with outline planning consent granted by Harborough District Council for the erection of three dwellings.

About this property

  • The property comprises a large, level and rectangular shaped site of approximately 0.32 of a hectare, with a narrow lane, on which a right of access for field access will be retained, with a public footpath along part also, to the north west, connecting the site to the village's Main Street. The site is partially tree lined and borders fields to the north, east and south, with the village's residential houses to the west. Whilst the site is outside the village's Conservation Area, the track is partially within it.

    The site currently has a large agricultural building and an area of hard standing upon it. The building was originally a grain store and then a cheese store. It is currently vacant.

    Outline Planning consent has been granted by Harborough District Council (18/01110/OUT, dated 12th June 2019) for the erection of 3 dwellings (access to be considered). Indicative plans associated with the application, and outlined in the application's Planning Assessment Addendum, demonstrate a mixture of single and two storey dwellings, one (under Policy H2), being a starter 2/3 bed home, each with two car parking spaces. The layout and design will be finalised during the submission of a reserved matters application.

This is a fabulous site with outline planning for three dwellings, in a secluded position with a great approach in the attractive village of Hungarton, traditionally known for Stilton Cheese. 8 miles east of Leicester City centre and, the market towns of Uppingham, Oakham and Market Harborough, with its mainline commuter rail services to London, are within 16 miles of the village, with their sought after schools.
