Having regard to the position with the Planning, there would be nothing to stop a purchaser commencing with construction on site immediately following the completion of their purchase.


We understand that all mains supplies of water, drainage, electricity and gas are available within the immediate vicinity of the site, with the connection points into the main supplies for water, electricity and gas found in the roadway immediately to the north of the site, ready for a purchaser to connect into following completion. There is a pumping station that was constructed by the vendors located immediately to the north east of the site, which a purchaser will be entitled to connect into in order to deal with site drainage.
