Mains water and electricity. Private drainage.DEVELOPMENT POTENTIAL
In the past there has been a succession of temporary consents for the siting of a mobile home to serve Boyton Nurseries, the last one being February 1998. Whilst there is an opportunity to re-open the nursery, the site may have potential for alternative uses, such as a rural office, a builder's yard or perhaps since the introduction of a "presumption in favour of sustainable development", in the National planning policy framework, there may be potential to create a dwelling, all subject to obtaining any necessary planning consent. Purchasers must make their own enquiries and satisfy themselves on this point.DEVELOPMENT CLAW BACK
Perhaps slightly unusually, there is no development claw back clause requiring a purchaser to pay the vendor for any share of an uplift in value.SPORTING AND MINERAL RIGHTS
The Sporting and Mineral Rights such as are owned are included within the sale.WAYLEAVES, COVENANTS AND RIGHTS OF WAY
