Lot 2

An attractive amenity paddock of approximately 0.64 hectares (1.58 acres) situated to the south of the site.

The village of Lingen is a highly desirable rural village with good communication links to the surrounding area. Local amenities include a public house, post office, village hall, church and chapel. Slightly further afield, Wigmore, Shobdon and Leintwardine have a range of services, including shops and highly regarded primary and secondary schools.

“The Local Neighbourhood Development Plan has been approved for the village, which includes Lot 1a and Lot 1b with the Plan identifying the site (Lot 1a) for the development of up to eight houses,” explained Ben Corbett, partner at the Hereford office of Berrys.

“Following a positive pre-application enquiry response from the Council and the fact that the site has been allocated for up to eight houses in the approved Neighbourhood Development plan we are due to get a decision on the planning application very soon.”

A separate planning application has already been granted approval by Herefordshire Council to remove the agricultural and forestry workers occupancy condition on the existing dwelling.

Information relating to these applications are available from Berrys and copies of the planning applications are also available on the Local Authority website:

“Unique properties such as this with house and development site in a countryside location rarely come to the market so we are expecting a great deal of interest,” Ben added.
