An excellent opportunity to create a high quality and individual development in a highly sought after location on the edge of this popular market town. There are excellent shops, schools and facilities in Ashbourne with the beautiful landscape of the Peak District just a few miles to the north.

The site enjoys good access to Derby (13 miles via the A52), other important centres and the A38 or the A50 (about 10 miles via the A515) which connects the M1 and M6 motorways.

Outline Planning permission was granted in April 2017 by Derbyshire Dales District Council (ref 16/00883/OUT) for the erection of 5 dwellings and is subject to the approval of reserved matters within 3 years of that date. Further information on the consent is available from the Agents or the Council –

The plan prepared by Fred Davidson (ref FDL/CN/HA/02) and shown within these details identifies the proposed development but is also overlaid to show the extent of the land to be sold, edged blue, and Hilltop, the sellers retained land edged red.

The plan indicates that 5 detached dwellings, of between 165m2 ( 1776 sq ft) and 190m2 (2045 sq ft) each with double garages can be accommodated on the site but this will be subject to the application for reserve matters.

Tenure: Freehold with a right of way over the shared drive leading from Derby road, subject to maintenance obligation, including various rights to alter the drive to accommodate the proposed development subject to making good.

To arrange a visit to the site, contact John German Estate Agents in Uttoxeter.

COVENANTS AND OBLIGATIONS: Covenants and obligations:

1.0. No more than 5 dwelling houses can be erected on the land.
2.0. No windows above ground floor level which overlook the garden of Hilltop will be allowed unless these are obscured glazed. Please note based on the existing layout proposed on the plan this would only apply to plots 3 and 5 on the west elevation.
3.0. The purchaser will be required to pay a fair proportion of maintaining the entrance drive.
Covenants and obligations continued:
4.0. The purchaser will be required at their expense to erect and thereafter maintain;

4.1. 1.2 metre high brick wall between points A and B.
4.2. 1.8 metre high brick wall between points B and C.
4.3. 1.8 metre high close boarded timber fence between points C to D as shown on the plan.

Note: The purchaser will be required to confirm the specification and prices assumed for each of the above obligations when submitting an offer for the land.

5.0. The purchaser will be required, prior to the completion of their development and at their cost, to provide a foul drainage connection point near point C (the specific point to be agreed on site) for the benefit of Hilltop. It is assumed this will be to connect Hilltop and the new houses to the main sewer or where the purchaser proposes using a private treatment plant, to that plant. Thereafter, if appropriate, the seller will pay 1/6 of the cost of maintaining the drains and any plant.
Services: There are existing services which cross the land supplying Hilltop and the adjoining courtyard properties. The purchaser will be required to divert and replace these as necessary at their cost to maintain the supply. In particular there is an overhead and underground electricity supply, telephone cables and potentially other drains and services.

There is no gas connected to Hilltop and we understand the water supply to Hilltop and adjoining courtyard properties runs on the south side of the entrance drive. However prospective purchasers should make further enquiries as necessary to satisfy themselves concerning services.

Viewing: By appointment through the Agents

Other Matters: Prospective purchasers are advised that some of the trees on the site are subject to Tree Preservation Orders (TPO) and development of adjoining land is currently or is planned to be carried out – further information is available from Derbyshire Dales District Council.
