    Site with outline planning permission for up to 40 homes, subject to Section 106 agreement, views of surrounding countryside, close to train station

    The site has its own independent access way off the adopted Shambles Drive, which is opposite an existing housing development. Open countryside surrounds the site on three sides. The site is mostly level with the main trees along the northern boundary of the site. The existing buildings which are located in the north-west corner of the site are former pig cubicles.  The access to the site is to be used by the residential units and the car park.  Along the western and southern boundaries, the housing is set back off the road to provide a village green.  The proposed SUDS basin is located to the south-east corner of the south just to the south of the car park.

    Mains water, sewerage, gas and electricity are available either on site or close to the site, please make your own enquiries with the statutory undertakers.

    The Property is available on a freehold basis with vacant possession on completion.

    The property is available for immediate possession.

    VAT will not be charged on the sale of the land.

    The site has a resolution to grant outline planning permission for the ‘residential development of up to 40 dwellings, a 64 space car park to serve Copplestone Train Station, public open space, a vehicular access from Shambles Drive, pedestrian links and associated infrastructure’. This is subject to a Section 106 agreement which has been agreed and it in the process to being drafted:

    * Affordable mix of 24% of 38 units (40 units -2 open market units allowed by current policy) which equates to 9 units, 5 of which to be starter homes, namely 80% of the market value, delivered by the developer and 4 units to be rented, supplied through a housing association.  

    * Combined primary school and early years education contribution of £146,520.

    * Secondary school contribution of £15,960. 
    * Delivery of the car park in a “national trust style” to the specification supplied by Sands consultants.

    Full details can be found on the Mid Devon District Council website Ref No: 16/01888/MOUT.  Alternatively please contact Helmores for further information.

    The site is offered for sale by informal tender. The vendors are seeking offers to dispose of the site on an unconditional basis by 12 noon 18th July 2017.

    COPPLESTONE is a 5-minute drive west of Crediton on the A377, a main route into the City of Exeter.  A stone’s throw to the southwest is Dartmoor National Park, renowned for its invigorating walks and sublime scenery. Previously a traditional farming hamlet, Copplestone has grown over the years, and now offers a fantastic selection of new-build, fully modern homes. This, coupled with its own primary school and locality to Queen Elizabeth’s Community College in Crediton, makes it perfect for families moving to Devon. The village has a strong camaraderie between residents, with a local church holding many events and in the local pub The Cross – where patrons chat by an open fire and enjoy fine ales. The pub gets its name from 
    a 3m carved granite cross, found in the village centre, of Saxon origin and steeped in mythology. There is also a shop/post office for convenience, and regular transport links (bus and train) towards Exeter, North Devon and Okehampton. 

    From the Helmores office in the High Street head west along the A377 to Copplestone.  Drive through the village on the A377.  Shambles Drive is the last turning on the right as you leave the village heading toward Morchard Road.
