The Property

A unique opportunity to purchase a prime residential development site, located in the highly desirable hamlet of Cwm-bach, just mile from the centre of the larger village of Glasbury, and overlooking the remarkable Wye Valley.

The site amounts to approximately 1 acre of gently sloping green-field land and is offered for sale with the benefit of outline planning permission for 8 dwellings (P/2018/0106), subject to a requirement that 30% of those dwellings shall be affordable homes. A full copy of the planning permission can be obtained on request from the Auctioneers.


No electricity connected although may be available nearby.

Mains water is believed to be available and a 160mm Dwr Cymru Welsh Water main supply passes through the site along the blue dashed line on the sale plan.

The land has no mains drainage infrastructure and any new development proposals for the site will need to include the provision of a suitable alternative sewage treatment facility.
