An attractive development opportunity to create a detached bungalow in a mature tree lined cul-de-sac within walking distance of Chard town centre is being offered by development land and planning specialists Greenslade Taylor Hunt.

The plot sits to the rear of Trelawne, Crewkerne Road, Chard, and originally formed part of the property’s garden.

In October 2019 South Somerset District Council granted detailed planning permission for a single storey, two-bedroom property on the site.

It will sit centrally within the plot, with areas of private garden to the east, south and west. The boundary wall to the north will be retained to provide privacy from Lyddons Mead.

Most of the garden planting on the boundaries will be maintained and supplemented with additional planting.

The property will include an open plan living/dining/kitchen area with french doors leading to the rear garden. A separate utility room leading from the kitchen will also provide access to the garden.

The existing garage will be retained and the car port entrance re-opened to provide vehicle access and off road parking for two vehicles.

This development could appeal to a developer or an individual seeking to create their own home. If the plot is bought by a developer a Community Infrastructure Levy of around £2,594.40 will apply. However, if it is built by a private individual this will not apply, as there is an exemption for self-build schemes.

The agents are quoting a guide price of £165,000. The deadline for the submission of offers is 12 noon on Friday, December 17.

A series of viewings are planned for November 23 and 30, between 9am and 11am. Please contact the agents on 01823 334466 or email mark.chugg@gth.net or james.nelson@gth.net for further information.
