Property description

The site which nestles alongside Black Brook is currently occupied by Cowling Mill which the vendors will arrange to demolish and clear at their expense.

It is convenient for comprehensive neighbourhood amenities and is near to attractive open countryside, including the Leeds Liverpool Canal and undulating area of Limbrick which leads up to the West Pennine Moors.

From Chorley town centre, proceed down Market Street to the big lamp and turn left into George Street. At the roundabout continue across into Lyons Lane and then at the junction turn right into Eaves Lane. Proceed south and at the roundabout bear left into Cowling Brow. The mill is then on the right (see location plan).

In the Report presented to the Planning Committee dated 22nd September 2014 the site was recommended for Outline Consent with the erection of up to 65 dwellings with all matters reserved save for access subject only to ecological matters being addressed and the proposals considered to be acceptable. Most ecological matters have now been resolved.

The approved scheme requires only three affordable units to be provided by way of conversion of the existing lodge house.

Comprehensive information is available on the Council’s website (Planning Application No. 14/00500/outmaj).

It is understood the site is Freehold and free from Chief Rent.

All mains services are available put purchasers are advised to make their own enquiries.

The existing floor area of the building can be used to offset the cil payment.
