VIEWING: Strictly by appointment with the Agent’s  Mayfield Office on 01435 873999.

DIRECTIONS:  The post code is BN27 1PQ.  If approaching from Cowbeech, continue to the end of Featherbed Lane and the entrance to the plot can be found almost exactly opposite the junction on the other side of the A271.  From Hailsham, proceed in a northerly direction on Battle Road. At the roundabout take the second exit on to Hawkswood Road and continue onto Amberstone. The property can be found on the right hand side opposite the junction to Featherbed Lane.

SITUATION:  The building plot is situated in a semi rural location on the north eastern outskirts of Hailsham. The centre of the market town of Hailsham is approximately 2 miles distant and provides a range of shopping, educational and recreational facilities and the nearest mainline railway station is located at Polegate (approximately 6 miles), which offers a direct service to London Victoria in only 11/4 hours.  There are a good range of schools in the local area with Herstmonceux having a popular primary school, community colleges in Heathfield and Hailsham, private schools in nearby villages and towns including Battle Abbey , Bede’s and Eastbourne College.

LOCAL AUTHORITY:  Wealden District Council,

Council Offices, Vicarage Lane, Hailsham  BN27 2AX 

Telephone: 01323 443322  email: info@wealden.gov.uk  www.wealden.gov.uk

DESCRIPTION: The building plot is situated to the east of Peppers and enjoys far reaching rural views to the south.  The boundary of the plot is clearly defined on the land.  There is a further area of land which is available by separate negotiation and could become an extension of the garden with/or ancillary accommodation.  This land currently has a wooden cabin in situ.  The total area including this land would be 0.39 acres

ACCESS:  The property is accessed off the main road (A271) by way of a private driveway through a double gated entrance leading to an area of hard standing.

SERVICES:  There is currently a temporary supply for mains water and mains electricity connected to the site however, these will be disconnected prior to completion. We are informed that there is mains drainage and mains water in the A271 however, we have not verified this with the local authority. The provision of drainage with this planning permission is by a septic tank (connection to the mains drainage system could be viable once Southern Water have completed scheduled works to the services in Hailsham)

PLANNING: Outline planning permission has been granted by Wealden District  Council on the 9th October 2017 (reference WD/2017/0479/O) for the erection of one dwelling. Permission is granted subject to the subsequent approval by the local planning authority of the detailed particulars of the layout and design which will need to be confirmed in a reserved matters application. Please note that the indicative house type/layout drawings are not approved. This planning permission enables any prospective purchaser to agree the design and layout of the building and associated garaging subject to the approval by the council. The planning permission was granted subject to a number of conditions which are set out on the decision notice, which all prospective purchasers should familiarise themselves with.  A full copy of the planning permission is available from Wealden District Council via their website or can be supplied by the Agent’s Mayfield Office on request. 

The Community Infrastructure Levy could be payable in line with Wealden District Councils schedule of charges. Interested parties will need to make their own enquires in respect of this. 


The drawings, floorplans and CGI imagery are for indication purposes only. They represent the plans submitted to the council to aid the planning permission but the size, design, layout and position have not been approved. These will need approval under a reserved matters application with Wealden District Council.

The land hatched in blue on the plan is available by separate negotiation
