Viewing by arrangement with Clive Emson Auctioneers

This rectangular plot of land is situated on level ground and enjoys a southerly aspect with panoramic views of the South Downs and surrounding countryside. The land is adjacent to the Holy Trinity Church with planning for a single detached five bedroom dwelling with double garage.

It is located in this prestigious residential area and is approached via a private drive just off Broad Street, close to the centre of the historic village of Cuckfield. There are comprehensive local shopping facilities and amenities within easy walking distance, with the mainline station located in nearby Haywards Heath. Excellent road links to London, Gatwick and Brighton via the A23 with all surrounding areas accessible via the A272.

Site Measurements

The site extends to 0.30 hectares (0.75 acres).


The seller has obtained Outline Planning Consent for the erection of one five-bedroom dwelling house and double garage, which was granted on 18th December 2013 under ref: 13/03476/OUT. Reserved matters approval in respect of the matters reserved under the Outline Planning Consent was granted on 9th October 2015 under ref: DM/15/2248 and the discharge of various planning conditions attached to Planning Consent, ref: 13/03476/OUT, were approved on 6th September 2017 under ref: DM/17/3032 and the seller subsequently implemented the Planning Consent, so it remains in place.

AuctioneerÂ’s Note

The current Planning Consent, although implemented, cannot be used by successors in title to the Seller, including the Buyer, by virtue of the Town and Country Planning General Regulations 1992 and therefore the Buyer will have to obtain a new Planning Permission for any proposed development of the property. While the Planning Consent cannot be used by the buyer, it does establish the principle that the property is an appropriate site for the development of one five-bedroom dwelling house.
