15 acres of land situated on the fringe of Watton with potential

This roughly rectangular plot of land extends to approximately 15 acres (subject to measured survey). It has direct access onto Swaffham Road and has frontage onto the River Wissey to the Northern boundary. The land is mainly laid to grass but could offer a wide range of alternative uses subject to appropriate planning approval. There is no uplift clause therefore this makes the site particularly attractive should any future planning be possible. The existing vehicular access is situated next to the bridge on the boundary of Watton and Saham Toney. The land adjoins, and has pedestrian access onto, Wayland Avenue.



The Site

The land is currently an arable field mainly laid to grass surrounded by established trees and hedgerows.


A planning application was submitted for 54 dwellings towards the upper end of the site, this was however refused details can be found on the Breckland District councils planning portal Ref3PL/2019/0010/F.


Interested parties are requested to make their own enquiries to the relevant authorities as to the availability of services.
