- Land & Development
Snarlton Lane is an attractive residential cul de sac on the eastern side of Melksham off Sandridge Road. The land will be accessed between number 324 and 329 Snarlton Lane and is surrounded by modern residential development and tucked behind a row of attractive cottages that front onto Snarlton Lane.
There are local shops and junior schools within walking distance and the new secondary school is within easy reach. The centre of Melksham is within a mile. Melksham is an attractive and growing town with improving local facilities and excellent road access on the A350 with the M4 being accessible just north of Chippenham.
This is a level site formally used as a transport yard and for the storage of vehicles but was originally agricultural. There is currently a track from Snarlton Lane accessing the bulk of the land although this is being retained by the owners. A new drive will need to be created adjacent to the existing access. The vendors will offer the purchasers temporary right of access over the retained land to facilitate development. There are some basic buildings on site which will need to be cleared and a large proportion of the site is covered by hard standing either tarmac or concrete.
We are advised that mains water, electricity, gas and drainage are available in Snarlton Lane. Plans showing location of services can be found in the data room. However interested parties must rely on their own enquiries with the appropriate utility provider to determine the suitability of those
Outline planning consent was granted for the erection of nine residential dwellings and associated access, planning reference; 17/02477/OUT, as amended by non-material change dated 15/MAY/2018. Associated plans and information can be accessed on Wiltshire Councils planning portal quoting the above reference.
The plan submitted with the application by the owners architects, shows a terrace of three; three bedroom houses, four; three bedroom detached houses and two; large four bedroom detached houses with garages. The plan provides for two parking spaces per dwelling.
Due to the scale of the development there is no requirement for affordable housing on this site. CIL will apply but our opinion is that an allowance should be made for existing buildings on site.
