An agricultural landholding covering 15.8 acres. Part Brownfield Part Greenfield Site. The site forms part of a joint venture with Midlands Land Portfolio Ltd, for the planning promotion of a portfolio covering over 300 acres.
The site is located within the picturesque village of Bulcote within Newark & Sherwood District Council to the north of Nottingham. The site is accessed via Old Main Road over the existing railway level-crossing to the existing farm complex.
Part Brownfield Part Greenfield Site. Former Model Farm complex with substantial agricultural buildings dating back to early 1900’s alongside some more modern additions and open agricultural land. The main agricultural buildings are Grade II Listed Buildings and the site lies within a Conservation Area and the Green Belt.
The existing agricultural buildings are in a reasonable state of repair and lend themselves well to conversion to residential. The buildings are no longer practical for continued agricultural uses therefore alternative uses must be sought to secure the long term future of the listed buildings.
Following an extensive marketing campaign detailed discussions have been undertaken with the local planning authority and Historic England to identify the most appropriate and most viable use for the listed buildings following which the principal of conversion to residential is agreed. Subsequently a planning application has been submitted for the conversion of the existing buildings to residential with an element of new build to serve as enabling development. Discussions with the local planning authority and Historic England have confirmed the need for 48 new build dwellings alongside the conversion of the existing building to provide 24 dwellings, providing a total of 72. Discussions are currently taking place with the Local Authority and Key Stakeholders on the application process with determination anticipated in Winter 2018.
Note: The Midlands Lane portfolio covers 11 sites across the Midlands and West Country and includes a variety of uses such as former waste water treatment works, office buildings, reservoirs and agricultural land. Northern Trust are managing the sites promotion through the planning system prior to disposal.
