Field Available by Separate Negotiation

There is a field adjacent to the property that may be available by separate negotiation. The field is approximately 1.91 acres. Purchase of the field will be subject to an overage agreement and will be sold subject to an overage on future non-agricultural development. The overage will not apply to any planning permissions granted or development or use in connection with agriculture, equestrian and forestry activities. If development takes place under the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) (England) Order 2015 Class or any subsequent act or change to the regulations then this will be a trigger event for the overage. This overage will be effective for 25 years from the date of completion of the sale and will be payable on the grant of planning permission (or disposal with planning permission) for such uses (excluding agriculture, forestry or equine use). The amount payable will be an agreed percentage of the increase in value resulting from consent. Our clients are open to discussion with any interested party regarding the conditions and possible sale of the field.

Area Note

Woodham Mortimer is a small village between Danbury and Maldon and is mentioned in the Domesday Book. The name is derived from the Old English meaning "Village in the Wood" and at the time of the Norman Conquest the parish was known as Little Woodham. The village has a local pub (The Hurdlemakers Arms), the parish church of St Margaret's, a driving range, a village hall and a cricket club.

Woodham Mortimer is only 7 miles due east of the city of Chelmsford and its excellent choice of facilities, including two outstanding grammar schools, a bustling shopping centre, a station on the main line into London Liverpool Street and access onto the A12. Closer to home, the picturesque village of Danbury also has a good choice of shops, amenities and two preparatory schools (Heathcote and Elm Green) and the nearby town of Maldon (recently named by The Times as the best place to live in the countryside) is a charming settlement on the River Blackwater dating back to Anglo-Saxon times and famous, among other things, for its sea salt and the traditional Thames sailing barges that use it as their home port.
