Site with Outline Planning Permission for a local occupancy residential dwelling and additional paddock area. Road frontage to Mell Fell View Road and distant views towards the Lake District Fells. The site is located within the Lake District Park (UNESCO World Heritage Site)

and enjoys picturesque countryside views. Extending in total to 0.50 acres.


The prime residential development site is shown edged red on the Sale Plan, along with an area of agricultural grazing land, not originally part of the outline Planning Permission, extending in total to 0.50 acres.

The proposed site (part of a larger application for two dwellings), has the benefit of outline planning permission for a dwelling, as well as the associated garden area, parking and shared access.   

The site benefits from a slightly elevated position above Mell Fell View road with particularly fine views in a northerly direction towards the Lake District Fells from the site.   

A sale on the adjacent building plot has already been agreed and it will be a requirement on any purchaser of this plot to reimburse the adjacent puchaser 50% of the costs related to installing the shared access drive and utilities / services to the plots.

The successful purchaser(s) will be required to erect and maintain a suitable stockproof fence along the rear boundary.


The site has the benefit of outline Planning Permission under the Lake District National Park Authority Ref No: 7/2017/3108, for the erection of two dwellings with associated gardens and parking and access.

The application was submitted on 18 August 2017 and the Notice of Outline Planning Permission is dated 3 November 2017.

A copy of the Planning Permission is included with these particulars.

Potential buyers attention is drawn to the Conditions, particularly Condition 3, which stipulates that the dwelling houses shall not be occupied otherwise than by a person with a local connection. The definition of a person with 'local connection' and the extent of the area defined as 'Locality' is set out within Condition 3.

The other important Condition is Condition 1 which requires an application for approval of the reserved matters to be made no later than three years from the date of the permission.

The development permitted shall begin no later than two years from the date of approval of the reserved matters.

Rural setting with picturesque countryside views.
Extremely pleasant and convenient location, just a short distance from Penrith.
Situated approximately five miles from junction 40 of the M6 motorway and Penrith mainline train station.

Outline planning consent for a residential   dwelling, subject to a local occupancy condition.
Mains water and electric available nearby.

Rare opportunity for an 'exclusive' residential development on the outskirts of this popular village and within the Lake District National Park (newly designated UNESCO World Heritage Site).

From junction 40 of the M6 motorway head west towards Keswick. At the roundabout continue straight on the A66 for approximately 5 miles, until you reach a right hand turn signposted Penruddock. Take this turning and on entry to the village take the left hand turn onto Mell Fell View Road. Follow this road for approximately 300 meters and the plot is on the right hand side denoted by our sale board.
