The site is currently occupied by a large former agricultural barn which is of simple construction formed from portal steel frame with profile sheet steel cladding and currently known as Earnshaw Business Centre.

It is situated at the end of a very quiet country lane and projects into the surrounding highly productive Leyland Moss in an area washed over as Green Belt with the added protection of being designated as an Area of Separation.

There are expansive and panoramic views over the surrounding fields, stretching across to Bowland Fells in the distance.

Comprehensive neighbourhood amenities are nearby in the form of schools, churches and other facilities and there is easy access into Leyland town centre, surrounding towns and cities and onto the junction where the M6, M61 and M65 converge.


From Leyland town centre proceed down Golden Hill Lane through the traffic lights controlled crossroad into Longmeanygate. At the roundabout continue along Longmeanygate and Hugh Lane is then on the right. See location map.


Outline Planning Permission to redevelop the site of the Business Centre, extending to 0.62 acres (0.308 hectares) or thereabouts was granted by South Ribble Borough Council on 12th November 2018 (Application Number 07/2018/6648/OUT).

Additional land to the north, being part of the cultivated paddock area held with the adjacent residence, is now being included increasing the area to 1.2 acres (0.487 hectares) to enable the plots which back on to the northern boundary to have extended gardens/paddock area.

The site provides the opportunity to develop an exclusive site of high quality residences benefitting from magnificent open views, with some plots having very generous dimensioned gardens.


It is understood that the main sewer connection is available in Hugh Lane opposite the adjacent bungalow.

Mains electricity and water supplies are laid to the site and gas is available in Hugh Lane.

Interested parties are advised to make their own enquiries.


The site is to be sold Freehold and free from Chief Rent.


It is understood the length leading off Hugh Lane is made and adopted and the length running west to the site is in the retained ownership of the Vendor.
