The property has operated as a landscape garden business for many years, the owners are now wishing to retire and the property is being made available for sale.

To the west and south there is an expanse of well kept grassland, extending to approximately 6.50 acres (2.63 hectares), which includes a small area taken up by a metalled track leading to a Yorkshire Water Waste Treatment Plant which is located on the western most boundary of the property. The track is owned by the vendors and forms part of the property. At the foot of the grass land there are soil storage areas and the land then extends eastward parallel with the railway line, these areas extending to approximately 1.37 acres (0.55 hectares), these areas, together with the site access extend to approximately 9.10 acres (3.66 hectares).


Current planning policy is governed by the East Riding Local Plan and Strategy Document which was adopted April 2016 and the Policies Map adopted July 2016. Under the prevailing Local Plan, the site lies outside the development limit of the village and is not shown to be classified within any particular designation and as a consequence it lies within ‘open countryside’.

National Planning policy promotes the use of 'brownfield sites' under the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF). Section 11 of the NPPF seeks to make effective use of such land in meeting the need for homes and other uses, while safeguarding and improving the environment and ensuring safe and healthy living conditions. A key strategy objective is to make as much use as possible of previously developed land. Substantial weight should be given by planning authorities to using suitable brownfield land.

The current ERYC Strategy Document supports the NPPF under two policies; Policy S3 Supporting development in Villages and the Countryside, covering areas outside settlements to help maintain the vibrancy of villages.

Policy H4: Making the most efficient use of land; proposals for new residential development will be supported where they make the most effective use of land or buildings. This will be achieved through encouraging the re-use of suitable previously developed land and supporting proposals that provide the optimum housing density. Lower density development will be appropriate where justified, where it would be in keeping with the character of the surrounding area; or where certain house types are needed in the area.

Further enquires should be directed to the East Riding of Yorkshire Council's Planning department or you should seek your own independent advice from a Chartered Town Planner.
