Development land and planning specialists Greenslade Taylor Hunt have been instructed as the sole agents to sell a significant piece of land within the development boundary of South Brent.

Part of the land at Palstone Lane, South Brent, falls within the village’s development boundary, while the remainder abuts the built-up area.

A detailed planning application for a mix of affordable and open market homes to the North of the site was submitted to Dartmoor National Park Authority in 2019 by South Hams District Council and the South Brent Community Land Trust.

It is expected that the park authority will approve the application, subject to completion of a Section 106 Agreement – developer’s contributions.

South Brent has been identified as a “local centre” in the draft Dartmoor National Park Local Plan, (2018-2036) which has been submitted to the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government.

It is now being scrutinised by the Planning Inspectorate with the intention of adoption in late 2021.

The land being marketed by Greenslade Taylor Hunt extends to around 7.89 acres (3.19 hectares). It is anticipated that access to the site would be provided by the proposed community development scheme already under consideration by the park authority or from a new access off Palstone Lane.

Around 1.86 acres (0.75 hectares) of the land being marketed by GTH falls within the built-up area and development boundary of South Brent.

The village is located on the South Eastern border of Dartmoor by the A38. South Brent is close to South Devon's glorious South Coast, which has some of the best sandy beaches in the Westcountry.

It takes under 30 minutes to drive to Plymouth's famous waterfront, while Exeter is about 40 minutes away via the A38.

The deadline for the submission of offers is 12 noon on Friday, October 15.

For information about the site, which is being offered for sale on a conditional basis – conditional on the grant of a satisfactory planning permission, please contact Mark Chugg or James Nelson on 01823 334466 or email or
