Scothern is a highly sought after village with good schooling nearby and a traditional village environment jealously guarded by local residents. The availability of a development site of this size is a rare opportunity. The site has outline consent for 32 dwellings including 8 affordable. The balance of the field of which the land currently forms part is under cultivation but vacant possession of the subject land will be available on completion. The development site slopes down gradually from north-west to south and south-east with a mature hedge along the extensive site frontage and along most of the northern boundary, and with Scothern Beck along part of the southern boundary. The Illustrative Site plan on the reverse of these details is based on the plan that accompanied the planning application and shows the land to be sold edged red. It is irregular in shape as the Vendors will retain a field access and a single building plot (Plot 11 on the Illustrative Site Plan).
The land is situated on the western edge of the village of Scothern and on the west side of Dunholme Road between existing housing and Scothern Nurseries, facing the grounds of the Manor House. It is located about half a mile south of the A46 and about 5 miles north east of Lincoln. As shown on the Location Plan on the reverse of these details, the large villages of Nettleham and Welton lie about 2 miles to the south west and north west respectively offering a wide range of shops and services including supermarkets, libraries and health centres. The nearest convenience store is the new Co-op lying about three quarters of a mile to the north in Dunholme.
Scothern (population 860 at the 2011 Census) is a traditional Lincolnshire village retaining a strong rural character with St Germains Church, the Bottle and Glass Public House and the Village Hall at its heart, about 300 metres to the east of the land along Main Street. Schooling is provided in the extremely well regarded Ellison Boulters C of E Primary School on Sudbrooke Road. There is an eclectic mix of housing types with many older stone built properties in the centre.
