FOR SALE R0751 - Land off D'urton Lane, Broughton, Preston, PR3 5LE


Residential development land suitable for high quality scheme

Prestigious location

1.46 hectares (3.61 acres) or thereabouts

Offers over £1,400,000

Sale Agreed



Although not an allocated site it is closely related to the strategic location and within an urban area rather than within open countryside.

An Application for 14 detached dwellings (Application No. 06/2015/0908) to Preston City Council was refused as the proposal was contrary to Core Strategy Policy 7 in that it failed to provide affordable housing.

After several discussions and meetings with the Planning Officer, an illustrative layout has been prepared which we are led to believe is acceptable.

The layout, as illustrated, provides 19 detached residences and 6 semidetached 3-bedroom houses which would form the affordable housing content. The shortfall in provision can be covered by payment to the Council of £67,500 for providing off site.

The illustration takes account of the gas main which runs through the site and the area which is subject to flood risk and which can be allocated as Public Open Space.

An acoustic fence is to be provided along the eastern boundary.


It is understood is Freehold and free from Chief Rent.


See PDF above.


It is understood all main services are available but purchasers should make their own enquiries.


We are informed that VAT is not to be charged on the price.
