There is a range of facilities locally whilst comprehensive shopping and recreational pursuits may be found within the heart of Braintree to the north. The area is well served by transport links with road links provided by the A120 a short distance to the north. Other transport links include local bus routes with a rail connection at Cressing which provides direct rail links to London Liverpool Street with a journey time of approximately 1 hour and also direct links to Braintree with a direct service and journey time of less than 10 minutes. This is a popular location which has seen significant growth in recent years and pressure upon housing resulting in further releases of land for development within the locality.

tenure: Freehold.

description:
This strategic parcel of land extends to approximately 5.2ha (12.8 acres) and has road frontage along both its north eastern and north western boundaries. Immediately to the north of the site lies another parcel of land which extends to approximately 13.5ha (33.5 acres) upon which it is understood a planning application has been submitted for the development of this land to provide 300 dwellings (40%) affordable. Should this application be successful and taking an average number of dwellings per acre, this site, subject to all necessary consents could therefore provide the opportunity for the development of some 100 dwellings subject to all necessary consents. The land is sold on an unconditional basis and buyers are deemed to rely on their own enquiries with regard to development prospects.

possession:
Full vacant possession on completion.

to view:
By application to the site during daylight hours. Please see important advice for viewers on page 16 of the catalogue.





Important Notice:
For each Lot, a contract documentation fee of £1000 (inclusive of VAT) is payable to Barnard Marcus Auctions by the buyer. The seller may charge additional fees payable upon completion. If applicable, such fees are detailed within the Special Conditions of Sale. Buyers are deemed to bid in full knowledge of this.

The Guide Price quoted must not be relied upon by prospective purchasers as a valuation or assessment of value of the property. It is intended to provide purchasers with an indication of the region at which the reserve may be set at the time of going to press. The guide price may be subject to variation and interested parties are advised to make regular checks for variations and should be aware that the reserve price may be either below or above the quoted guide price.

Prospective purchasers should also be aware that the eventual sale price may be above or below the guide level dependent upon competition, and should therefore not presume the guide to be indicative of the final expected sale price or the price the property is available at.

When setting the guide price, the auctioneers have given consideration to the seller’s instructions in respect of their indicated reserve price at the time of instruction. The reserve price, (the level below which the property will not be sold), remains confidential between the seller and the auctioneer. The guide price therefore, is intended to indicate the region at which the reserve price is intended to be set. The seller will confirm their final reserve price close to the auction date and if appropriate the auctioneers may adjust the guide price to reflect this.
Whilst Barnard Marcus make every effort to ensure the safety and security of viewers at properties, we have not carried out a detailed Health & Safety inspection of properties in our auctions and cannot therefore guarantee the safety and security of viewers.
Prospective purchasers and bidders attend properties entirely at their own risk. Particular care should be taken when accessing cellars, attics, exterior grounds and outbuildings and boundaries. All non-conducted inspections of vacant sites should be made in daylight hours only and entry into such sites is entirely at the viewers risk.
