THE SITE The developable area is broadly rectangular in shape, with river frontage to the south west, where there is a lower area given over to recreation and conservation. The site has a long frontage onto the A4078 road, which links Talgarth to Three Cocks and the Hay-on-Wye/Hereford road. To the south is the town's doctors surgery which was built on a greenfield site, approximately 10 years ago and to the north is open farmland, also suitable for development in the future. The site lies at approximately 380 feet above sea level and has a gentle, mainly westerly aspect with good views in most directions.
ACCESS Directly off the A4078 road where there is good visibility. Included within the scheme is the possibility of a pedestrian or cycle link to Bronllys which is less than a mile away to the north west. The vendors own a large area of land to the north of site, some of which may be suitable for development in the future. For this reason, the access road that serves the site being sold will need to have a link designed into their retained land.
SERVICES Mains services are all believed to be available nearby. There is mains drainage to the doctors surgery next door and the main town sewerage works lies approximately 600 yards to the north west, with the vendor owning the land between this site and it. Mains gas, water and electricity are understood to be available nearby - further information awaited.
PLANNING CONSENT This was granted on the 10th October 2011 for "proposed residential development including access highways and infrastructure (outline application)" - copies available on request.
