AGENTS NOTES

PLANNING FOR A NEW PROPERTY: An informal opinion has been sought from a planning consultant on the prospect and size of any future property.
'Subject to planning permission, a replacement dwelling can be built with a floor space of 170 square metres (1830 square feet), or the bungalow can be extended with additions that amount up to 100 square metres. There is also scope to extend the bungalow by approximately 56 square metres under the permitted development rights through the submission of a certificate of lawfulness application'.
All prospective purchasers and or buyers MUST seek independent advice on this matter before purchasing and the above is all subject to the usual permission from the local authority being granted.

FOOTPATHS & PATHS: The track access to the property is designated a Public Footpath and disappears to the meadows away from the property. A path does appear in print on some land plans but this is NOT a Right of Way or Public Footpath, it is a historic path which was used by workers to the Powder Mills and is no longer in use. To that end there are no Public Rights of Way over the property.
