The site - EX22 6BP
An opportunity to acquire a development site with the benefit of outline planning permission (Ref.1/0546/2015/out) for 2 dwellings within close proximity to the centre of this popular market town. The site has been used until recently as allotment gardens for local residents but is now vacant and sits above the level of the road and pavement and extends to approximately 0.15 acres. To the side and the rear of the site is the recent residential development by Cavanna Homes on the former cattle market site.
Holsworthy is a traditional North Devon market town on the Devon Cornwall border. It offers a taste of country life with a weekly cattle market and a bustling pannier market every Wednesday, when stalls take over the Market Square. There are also a variety of small shops clustered around the square, and there are several inns, cafés and tea rooms nearby as well as the Holsworthy museum just off market square. This museum features displays about an era of bygone rural life. Out of town, there is the beautiful rural landscape to explore with numerous footpaths and cycle paths and further afield there is the rugged coastline of the Hartland peninsula to discover along with the sandy beaches of Bude and Widemouth Bay to enjoy.
Torridge District Council granted outline planning permission (Ref. 1/0546/2015/out) for 2 dwellings, garages and parking on land at Chapel Street, Holsworthy on 7th September 2016.

However, a detailed report has been undertaken by Nigel Smith of Teign Consult regarding the potential Foul and Surface Water drainage schemes and estimated costs for the site and the report is held on file by the agents.
At any reasonable time, but in the first instance please contact the vendors joint sole agents.
The architect, John Woodward, is happy to discuss either the reserved matters application for two dwellings or to look at an alternative design for two-storey dwellings. Although this would require discussions with the Council, if agreement could be reached it may be beneficial to make a fresh detailed application rather than the Reserved Matters application.
