Property ref: BR/2161


Viewing by appointment with the Agents. Any intrusive site or subsoil investigations may take place only given completion of a form of indemnity available through the Agents.


The property is located to the north west of the Village of Drub and west of Gomersal village centre in a partly rural location with local ‘treescape’ appeal yet close to the existing ‘sought after’ residential areas and amenities offered in the village with convenient access to M62 Junction 26 and Whitehall Road. The final approach is along Latham Lane, a ‘cul de sac’ from Gomersal having a number of bespoke and character properties and particularly without the intrusion of through traffic.

The plot is generally level with extensive frontage to Latham Lane and presently consists of an outdoor riding ménage with a redundant indoor riding school required to be removed to permit the development on its footprint. The balance of the plot can provide opportunities for landscaping subject to planning approval. Grazing can be made available locally under licence from the seller. An American style barn provides for 8 pony/horse stabling and ancillary storage but could be adapted for alternative use subject to planning.


The approved plans provide for new build to provide:


Living room 8.2m x 4m
Dining room 4.5m x 4m
Kitchen 6m x 3.6m
Utility 4.6m x 2.4m with w.c. off.


Bedroom 1 4.6m x 4m together with en-suite shower facility
Bedroom 2 4m x 3.5m
Bedroom 3 4m x 4m
Bedroom 4 4.2m x 4m
House Bathroom 2.5m x 2.2m


Bedroom 5 5.2m x 4m
Study 5.2m x 4m


The Double garage & parking on the former ménage area is set out and will provide for the approved public vehicle turning head and the opportunity for landscaping and garden. Beyond is a small paddock area, currently in grass, bordered by mature standard trees to the north side. The east side is to be walled as part of the existing riding school and which wall between A & B is to be retained by the vendor but will be capped off to 2.2m height in accordance with the consent but subject to the purchaser being responsible for its future maintenance and to be bounded by a similar wall between points C & D to be built and maintained by the seller.

Planning consent has been obtained from Kirklees Council under Decision No: 2007/62/95318/E1 dated 11 March ‘08. Conditions are generally as standard and at (3) require approval of materials and the approval of plans for turning head arrangements under Condition (5).

Detail of the required passing places in land controlled by the seller is to be settled by the Vendor in accordance and in seeking to discharge Condition (4).

Copies of the application, plans and consents are available for inspection at the Agents office. It should be noted that it is extremely unlikely that any other form of development or adaptation would be contemplated by the Planning Authority in order to comply with current national planning guidance where the site lies within formal adopted ‘green belt’.

The prospective purchaser will be required to complete the civil engineering operations and obtain Highway Clearance during construction of the passing places to be undertaken in compliance with a schedule of works to be prepared by the seller relating inter alia to access and boundary treatment and thereafter provide for the future maintenance save in the event of adoption.

In addition to planning requirements, any further addition or alteration to the development will be subject to the vendor’s prior written approval.

The use of the property is to be restricted to a single domestic residential purpose only and particularly any industrial commercial or use for keeping of any thing other than domestic pets or equestrians will be precluded. Note also the requirements for approval of the landscaping proposals are as cited above.
