For SaleResidential Development Site

Residential Development Site, Highcliffe, Wellingore, Lincolnshire, LN5 0HG


The site comprises a regular shaped greenfield parcel of land with a ‘Developer Friendly’ extant Planning Permission in place, for the erection of 9 detached residential units.

The site is bordered to the east, west and south by existing residential development and to the north by open farmland, albeit there is Outline Planning Permission on this land for residential development.

The site sits at the western end of Highcliffe, a cul-de-sac providing the access road to dwellings sitting either side of the road.

Future vehicular and pedestrian access onto the land being sold, will be taken from Highcliffe, an adopted Public Highway.

The original Planning Permission dates back to June 1979. With this Planning Permission now implemented, through the construction of the other dwellings along Highcliffe, it remains in place, into perpetuity.

The existing Planning Permission is particularly ‘Developer Friendly’, with no affordable housing or other Section 106 contributions payable by the developer, provided the existing permission is built out, without a developer making a new application.


Located within the district of North Kesteven, Wellingore is a popular Lincolnshire ‘cliff edge’ village, that attracts high residential values, situated approximately 11 miles to the south of Lincoln and 15 miles north of Grantham, via the A607, which runs through the village. The Viking Way, a popular walking route also passes through the village along the cliff edge.

The village sits adjacent to the larger  village of Navenby and combined the villages offer a wide range of local amenities, including two public houses, a variety of shops, including a Co-op and One Stop convenience stores, a large doctors’ surgery and a village primary school.

There is also a petrol filling station and small convenience store in Wellingore, located on the A607.

These two villages combined have a population of around 3,600, based on estimates from 2020.

The subject site is located at the western end of Highcliffe, an adopted cul-de-sac situated within the centre of the village, surrounded  predominately by existing residential development.


We understand all mains services are available in the vicinity of the site along Highcliffe. However, the Vendors cannot give any guarantee as to the capacity of these.

Interested parties are advised to make their own enquiries with the utility providers.

Town & Country Planning

As referred to above, the site benefits from an extant Full Planning Permission dated 12 June 1979, under reference number N/73/520/79. with the larger part of the site already built out, there remains in place planning permission under this extant consent for 9 units on the land now being sold.

The Planning Permission and other planning documents can be viewed on the North Kesteven District Council planning portal under the above reference. Copies can also be obtained from the Agents on request.

The existing Planning Permission is a ‘Developer Friendly’ one, with no Section 106 agreement in place.
