Full description

LOCATION The development site is located on the outskirts of the Georgian market town of Wisbech. Locally known as the Capital of the Fens, Wisbech has a population of around 22,000 and is a market town of great character and historical importance.

Wisbech lies approximately 23 miles from Peterborough, 39 miles from Cambridge and 55 miles from Norwich. The A47 Trunk Road between Norwich and Leicester passes around the southern and eastern side of Wisbech.

SITE DESCRIPTION The site, outline in red on the attached plan, is on the northern boundary of a recent residential development. Access to the site will be via the estate roadways through the new development; Weasenham Lane, Abraham Drive and Ellerby Drive, which will be completed including final surfacing by the vendors. The current development site extends to 0.27ha (0.67 acre) with wide frontage to an estate road.

In addition to the development site included in the sale is an area of open space also abutting the northern boundary of the new development, shown outlined in blue on the attached plan. This land extends to 0.53ha (1.32 acres).

PLANNING Planning Consent has been approved by Fenland District Council for various schemes on the whole of the development site. Planning consent has been implemented on the site as a whole.

The land outlined in red has had two proposed layouts previously granted. Under planning reference F/YR10/0074/RM consent was granted for 26 flats. Under planning reference F/YR08/0259/RM consent was granted for 22 houses. Both consents involved other areas that have been developed and thus are implemented. Copies of these consents and associated documents are available for inspection on the Fenland District Council website (online planning section).

The land outlined in blue is currently identified as public open space in the current planning consent. This land is included in the sale and there is no current requirement to transfer this area to a specified party.
