WITH DEVELOPMENT POTENTIAL
Hill Farm is a well-shaped, ring-fenced arable unit situated between Gunton's Road (west), the A16 (east) and against Car Dyke (south), sitting between the City of Peterborough and Newborough village. The farm consists predominantly of Grade 2 soils in an arable crop rotation including a three million gallon reservoir providing irrigation through a Winter Abstraction Licence.
Gunton's Road provides direct highways access to all four Lots. The farm also benefits from a right of way from Middle Road adjacent to the A16.

These Planning Reports, including a Strategy Development Potential and Capacity Report, Car Dyke Schedule Monument Report, Landscape Design Strategy, Ecology Report can all be found in the Data Room provided (details below).
