Plot 8, Ashmoor Gardens, Houghton
Were not just selling a plot here, you're buying a lifestyle that just cannot be found easily in this day and age. Welcome to Ashmoor gardens, the beginning of your dreams...
The Site - There are three distinct types of plots available referred to as types A, B & C. Even the small plot is not small at all and the larger plots are just that - large.
Planning permissions are granted on the basis of the drawings available for inspection and the designs provided here are interpretations based on those actual drawings.
The vendor has provided the estate road to sub-base level which will be hugely beneficial for the building of each plot. Services have been connected to the estate including mains electricity, water and drainage. Once the plots are built the road will be finished to adoption standards when it is expected that the Local Authority will take over responsibility so no ongoing service charges or management fees will apply.

The Plots are to be sold subject to the following terms and conditions:
1. The Plots have the benefit of a Planning Permission by virtue of the Approval of Reserved Matters dated 28 October 2011 (copy attached).

12. It is envisaged that a 1.8 metre margin on either side of the Estate road (not included in the sale) will be made available by the County Council (following adoption) to the frontagers on licence, in order that the frontagers can maintain/plant these margins.
