For Sale - Under OfferDevelopment Land

Lindwood Road, Market Rasen, LN8 3QE



A roughly rectangular level parcel of land, currently used for grazing, extending to in total circa 1.87 hectares (4.62 acres).

The site abuts Linwood Road on its western side and has an open outlook to the east, south and west over open farmland.

There is existing residential development to the north and north east, with the latter forming part of the new Fox Hollow development being built out by Rippon Homes.

Vehicular access into the site will be taken from Linwood Road.

The site formerly had Outline Planning Permission for up to 45 residential units, with a central spine road serving the new proposed build development to the north and south of this. Indicative layouts produced and approved at the time are included later in these particulars.


The site is situated on the eastern side of Linwood Road, a short drive to the south of Market Rasen town centre. Both the town train station and Tesco Superstore are located on Linwood Road to the south of the town centre, so a short distance north of the subject site. 

The site enjoys an attractive semi-rural location on the southern edge of the town, with modern housing estates to the north developed by Hugh Bourn some years ago and, more recently, by Rippon Homes.

Market Rasen is a popular Lincolnshire Market Town, with a population of just over 4,000, situated mid-way between Lincoln and Grimsby, around 18 miles to the south and north respectively, via the A46 trunk road.

The town sits on the southern edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds, an area of outstanding natural beauty, offering a good range of local amenities and is the home of De Aston School, one of the best regarded secondary schools in the County.


We understand that mains supplies of water, drainage, electricity and gas are available within the vicinity of the site. However, interested parties are advised to make their own enquiries to the respective utility service providers to ascertain the exact location and capacity of each supply in the area. It is anticipated that these will come in off the Linwood Road side of the development.
