2.19 acres (0.89 hectares) with Outline Planning Consent for up to 22 dwellings with associated infrastructure.

Frontage onto A586, giving superb marketing opportunities.

Set in sought after rural village with ample amenities.

The site is located within the settlement of Great

Eccleston. Whilst access is proposed to be directly onto the A586 there is walking access along Back Lane to all the facilities within the village which

include pubs and restaurants, shops including bakery and renowned fish and chip shop as well as the village school.


The site has the benefit of Outline Planning Permission with all Matters Reserved.

The site planning reference is 16/00651/OUTMAJ and will be subject to a Section 106 Agreement. Please note that at the time of launch the Section 106 Agreement is not finalised.

Education Contribution:

A maximum contribution through the Lancashire County Council formula is proposed in the sum of £64,269.81.

Affordable Housing:

The site is to provide 30% affordable housing which has been rounded up to show seven affordable dwellings. The initial preference through the 2015-20 Rural Housing Needs Survey is for smaller affordable dwellings, namely six x two bedroom apartments and one x two bedroom house all for affordable rent.

We would expect the prospective purchaser to seek a mix that delivered more value subject to

agreement with the selling agent.


The access onto the A586 is described within

consultee response as 'easily achievable' at the point of the existing field access, this being 5.5 metres wide with a 10 metres radii and 2 metres footpath.

- A right hand turning lane to be created with central refuge.

- New illuminated traffic island/pedestrian refuge.

- Existing layby to the north east of the site entrance to be relocated.
