DEVELOPMENT SITE & PLANNING STATEMENT
The red area shown on the site plan (4 Ha 9.8 Acres) is allocated for residential development in the North Ayrshire Local Development Plan Adopted Plan CFS44- Nov 2019 (Policy 1 New Homes and Maintaining an Effective Housing Land Supply) with an indicative capacity of 100 dwellings. As part of preparing the Plan, the Council has assessed the site, and the relevant summary page is available by contacting the Selling Agent.
Prospective purchasers will note that no particular constraints are identified by the Council, other than the fact that a small watercourse passes through the land, and so flood risk will need to be considered with any planning application.
The land has no planning history, and no designations that we are aware of. The remaining land, shown on the site plan is available for sale but is not currently zoned for housing.
