Offered for sale: a vacant site formerly occupied by the Macmillians public house. The site is hard surfaced and is being sold with planning permission for the construction of 10 residential dwellings. Offers are being invited in excess of the guide price for the freehold interest.

The former Macmillians public house is located on the corner of Long Lane and Denfield Lane.  The site is approximately 0.57 acres and is currently vacant, covered with hard surfacing and surrounded by security fencing.


Detailed planning permission was granted on the 01.04.2015 (ref.14/01492/FUL) for the construction of 10 new dwellings and the creation of a new access, modification of an existing access, car parking and landscaping. The approval is for a mix of two and three bedroom properties, and is free from s106, CIL and social housing.

The legal pack will not be issued until this deposit is lodged. If the deposit is not lodged within this period then the vendor reserves the right to remarket the site
