This development opportunity is located in the centre of Chard to the east of the town centre. The site is close to the Tesco supermarket and directly opposite and adjoining the “East End” regeneration proposals. Chard is an attractive and expanding town located in South Somerset close to the Devon and Dorset borders. The town is on the A30 and links with the A303 and A358 to the north. The Blackdown Hills AONB lies to the west and north of the town.
The site extends to around 0.44 acres (0.18 hectares) and provides an excellent small scale development opportunity. The site lies within the development boundary for Chard and is not subject to significant Planning Policy constraints. It is therefore capable of supporting a range of uses, subject to planning. The site adjoins the Chard East End Regeneration proposals forming part of the recently adopted (March 2015) Local Plan and there is potential for land assembly to create a larger development site. The site has previously secured planning permission for residential development of 12 dwellings under applications 07/03289/OUT and 10/04858/REM although these permissions have subsequently lapsed. Prospective purchasers should however make their own enquiries with the planning authority in relation to their specific requirements.
