Opportunity to acquire 93.13 acres (37.69 hectares) thereabouts of land in a single block situated on the edge of the urban fringe of the City of Kingston Upon Hull, East Yorkshire. The land has been in arable production but it is considered it holds long term 'hope value' for alternative uses, including solar, residential or bio diversity net gain offset, (subject to the usual consents and planning approvals.


The land parcel is situated towards the north eastern fringe, approximately 5 miles north of the city centre and a short distance south west from the village of Wawne, with access leading from Cumbrian Way.


The land is in a single block divided up into several land parcels and includes a number of woodland copses. To the north, the land borders an established solar park, to the east it is bounded by the Holderness Drain and to the south by Bransholme Nature Reserve.

Under the Agricultural Land Classification Map, the land is identified as being Grade 3, the Soil Association being 'Wallasea 1', a marine alluvium.

Designations etc.

The land is located within a surface water Nitrate Vulnerable Zone (NVZ).

The land is identified under the Hull Local Plan as part of its Green Network, but shown as 'agricultural land', which is covered by Policy 43 'Green infrastructure and the Green Network' in the Hull Local Plan. Further enquiries as to alternative uses should be directed to the Local Authority, The Hull City Council (01482) 330077, or advice should be sought from an appropriately qualified independent Town Planner.

Basic payment scheme

Wayleaves, easements & rights of way

The land is sold subject to and with the benefits of all rights of way, water, drainage, watercourses and other easements and rights of adjoining property owners affecting the same and all existing and proposed wayleaves and other matters registered by any competent authority subject to statute.

There is understood to be a 180mm diameter foul water drain along the western boundary of the land. An as built plan is available, however it is believed no formal easement was entered into with the water authority when the drain was laid.

There is an electric transmission line running along the southern boundary of the land, a copy of the easement is been sought form the owners, there is believed to also be a 600mm water main main pipe under the land. Again further details are being sought.
