Lot 48


Land Swanton Lane, Sturry, Off Canterbury Road, Sturry, Canterbury, Kent, CT3 4AX
Sold £160,000

Situated east of Canterbury between the City and Littlebourne is this freehold site which extends to approximately 6.75 hectares (16.68 acres). The site is accessed from Swanton Lane, off the A257 (Canterbury Road) and is known as Oldridge Wood Lagoons.


Planning Permission was been granted by Kent County Council, under ref: CA/13/2055, dated 15th May 2014, for development of the land situated at Oldridge Wood Lagoons and being the variation of Condition 2 (restoration period), Condition 10 (hours of HGV movements) and Condition 11 (highway management scheme), of Planning Consent CA/12/606, for the infilling of open lagoons formerly used in the disposal of tannery wastes, subject to conditions. The consent has now lapsed but we understand it allowed for the tipping of 33,500 cubic metres of material.

A copy of the ESG Report for the restoration Oldridge Wood Lagoons, dated March 2012 and Planning Permissions under CA/12/606 and CA/13/2055, will be available to download from the Clive Emson website or inspection at the Auctioneer's Office.


Interested applicants may view directly on site at any reasonable time.
