LOCATION The property is prominently located south of Sluice Road, the main road running through the sought-after North-west Norfolk village of Denver and represents one of the few remaining undeveloped areas within the centre of the village. The site lies approximately 2 miles south of the centre of Downham Market.
THE LOCALITY The village of Denver benefits from a number of amenities including village Post Office and stores, public house, church and village playing field with clubhouse.

Denver itself is only one mile south of Downham Market with further extensive shopping facilities, Primary and Secondary Schools, Bus Station and Train Station.
The area is served by regional and national transport links. The A10 passes close by and gives access to King's Lynn, Littleport, Ely and Cambridge. The popular North Norfolk coastal region is only half an hour's drive away.
Downham Market benefits from a regional bus service to the major regional centres as well as the local villages.
Downham Market lies on the King's Lynn to Cambridge and London line with journey times from Downham Market to King's Cross of around one and a half hours.

PLANNING Part of the site is included within the Borough Council of King's Lynn and West Norfolk Local Plan (which was adopted in September 2016) as a Housing Allocation under Reference G28.1.

Further details are available from the Selling Agent.

An option agreement is in place to acquire the necessary rights of access and easements across the land to serve nine dwellings. The successful purchaser will take on the responsibility for paying the option fee. Further details are available from the Selling Agent.
